    I would love an opportunity to go to Blogshop online! I’m a newly-graduated freelancer graphic designer who’s also just started blogging – so this class would be the perfect fit for me on all fronts!

    if you are looking for the most artistically frustrated blogger…that would be me! i don’t have a company or one that wants me to learn photoshop, but i am artistic, and i do have a blog that i’ve been working on for about 5 years now. i know what i want to do, what changes i want to make,and how i want my blog to look or be, but i don’t exactly know how to do it! it’s so simple yet so frustrating. i would love to take part in your on-line course. LOVE!

    Liz says:

    I’ve been trying to pull the trigger on starting a blog for almost a year now. and the main thing stopping me is my skillz with a camera and learning how to use Photoshop (I grew up with Corel products and now just use Gimp so I always feel backwards!).

    This would be amazing to get the push in the direction I need!

    deborah says:

    yay! i blog in my free time and at work, and am looking to improve (and speed up) my design skills, so i would love to take blogshop!

    Kristen says:

    Oh my I would love love love to win this. I just had a baby and am taking my time off (yay Canadian mat leave) to learn everything I can about design so I can take my web design skills freelance! I am definitely going to sign up sometime, but this would be so helpful for my budget 🙂

    Thao says:

    How fun! I’m a new business owner, and though I know Photoshop, I would love to learn some techniques on how to create a more dynamic blog and social media presence through graphics. Original content is tough, but you guys make it look easy!

    Aly says:

    My best friend and I just started a blog and we need all the help we can get!

    Cristina says:

    I would love to win for my friend Stefania! she is super creative and she would love to attend the course! We have a blog together but she is the real mind of it so I think she would love to attend!
    Thanks for the opportunity,
    Cristina

    I’ve tried and failed to learn photoshop to improve my blog posts on my own way too many times. I think blogshop is the answer 🙂

    I’m both an interior design blogger and a small business owner – my biz partner and I just launched our firm a few months ago. I’ve always wanted to attend blogshop here in New York but because of cost I haven’t made the jump yet. I’d love to win and use the skills I learn not only on my own blog posts but towards the business as well. I’m crossing my fingers!

    Brianne says:

    I’m a graduate student studying Ecology. I would like to get into web design for academics and make sciencey websites that are well designed and more friendly to a broader audience. Blogshop would provide me with a skillset to get started!

    Katie says:

    I would use my new blogshop skills to make both my personal blog and my small business blog look totally KICK ASS, of course!

    Silvia says:

    That is awesome! I would use it for a small project that my dad and I are working on, where we document our family’s history with pictures and videos. for this, we interview my grandpa and grandma, who are turning 75 this year (!). if everything looks good and professional in the end, I would love to make a bigger project out of it…and since I’m a student I can’t afford a blogshop class right now. crossing fingers… 🙂

    I just started blogging and I will eventually be starting my own business. Blogshop would be an amazing help! Thanks for the chance to win this awesome opportunity!

    Iquo says:

    I just started my own business/online shop: http://www.keaishop.com
    I also have my music site/blog: http://www.iquoismusic.com
    I would love to learn more about web design, photoshop, blogging and business tips and so much more. If I could win a spot in this class that would be so helpful!

    Iquo

    iquoismusic.com

    Would love to use blogshop to improve the overall look of my music blog This Is Our Jam, while opening up new opportunities for more creative posts and collaborations!

    karly marie says:

    Started my love of design back in my high school yearbook class – since then I’ve moved on to designing everything from church bulletins to office Christmas cards to baby announcements! A BlogShop class would give me a chance to focus on a side project I’m starting – calligraphy! Would love the opportunity to learn from you talented girls!

    Samantha says:

    I’m a content marketing specialist (a lot of blogging) at a marketing agency, and I’d love to use my blogshop skills toward the work I do for my clients!

    Good morning! This is so exciting. I’ve got a double-whammy, I work as a Marketing Coordinator and a Lifestyle Blogger. On the marketing side, I could cut some of the costs I have to outsource things to ad agencies and on the blog side, I could make things look SO much prettier. Polyvore and Canva just aren’t cutting it anyone. Thanks for this opportunity! Jess

    Danielle says:

    Just what this girl needs! I’d love to learn some quick commands and what fonts go together!

    Mar says:

    I would love to learn some fancy tricks, like how to animate gifs and edit photos!

    Pepa Cobos says:

    I would love to learn Photoshop and I would really love to learn it your way. I need it to do a better job, to give even more to my potential clients and….. well, just for fun!!!

    lauren says:

    i’m a blogger and would LOVE to learn to learn the skills y’all are teaching! i have some business ventures possibly opening up in the future that it would definitely help with, too!

    Andrea B says:

    I’m a fashion designer on a denim company and lately I had the desperate need to improve my photoshop skills and give a well deserved makeover to the company’s look!

    I would LOVE to be able to take the BlogShop course! As a blogger from East Coast Canada, I was always bummed that the classes never came to my neck of the woods! It would be great to take the online class from home. I would use it to make graphics for my blog, enhance my outfit pictures, and to make promotional items for my new videography business!

    Jennie Slagerman says:

    I would use my blogshop skills to enhance my blog, as well as use it in my job. I am in a communications role, and do a lot of visual communications, as well as other graphical things. This would be a great thing to win!!

    danielle says:

    bri this is awesome! i just revamped my blog, and would use these skills to take my posts to the next level by getting more creative with graphics, and incorporating videos! this would be such a huge win!

    Laura N says:

    I work for a museum where I’ve recently helped to created an educational website. The process has been amazing, but both my boss and I feel that if I were to become more fluent in photoshop, I’d only be able to help enhance the site that much more. I’ve been searching for ways to afford this class, and being able to take it would be a dream come true!

    kelly says:

    honestly blogshop would be a lifesaver because i’ve been going back and forth about setting up my own blog/shop. i’ve been collecting collectibles and small knickknacks from all over asia and literally have had the stock for months but can’t find the push to master setting up the shop, online presence and taking photos of the products. it’s just the push i need!

    Jennifer says:

    I used to run a blog, and I want to jump start that. There were a lot of things that took too long, ie: preparing photographs, and making them actually tell the story that made it hard for me to continue. I think you can help me with that!

    I’d love a class with Elise- I was so happy to see her on there. I also could use blogging and photography classes as well!

    Tilly says:

    Omigawd I would LOVE to win a place on Blogshop! I recently quit my job to focus on my blog and budding business, Tilly and the Buttons, which offers user-friendly guides to making your own clothes for the new wave of DIY dressmakers. A big part of what I do is to present what is seen as a grandma’s craft (certainly in the UK anyway) to a younger audience who are interested in style, so creating a fresh and modern look is really important! I would lurrrrve to learn the skills to snazzify my blog and shop site, and to create some really unusual images for my online sewing guides. Thank you for the opportunity!

    Kelley says:

    My husband and I are moving to NYC in 2 weeks and we’re going to start a blog about our move from New England to Manhattan. This blogshop class would be perfect to help us get started! I have some experience with photoshop but would love to learn some tricks and new skills to make a beautiful blog. xx

    amy says:

    i’m a blogger who wants more quality posts – but i also have a dream to be a small business owner!

    chloe trudel says:

    I’m just starting my blog (a.k.a haven’t finished writing my first post) so I’m really a newbie at this. But I have no clue how to use Photoshop and I know this class would be SO helpful to help me realize my dream of having a blog. In the description of the class, every thing listed is everything I need to learn! This would be an amazing opportunity. 🙂 YAY!

    Regina says:

    My blog has become my freedom and my jail (as Kanye once said in love song). I love seeing a fresh post up on my page, but I get so discouraged when the pictures or the site itself looks all buttony and poorly made and it makes me wanna quit. I also know I’m needing to build a portfolio for grad school/ certain jobs and unfortunately my Polyvore graphics aren’t gonna cut it! I hope to make my OWN graphics and content to look tip top for personal and professional reasons– which is something you girls have obviously got down. Thanks!

    Lindsay says:

    My need for blogshop is a little unusual, but definitely neccessary! I’m a neuroscientist. When preparing my research to publish in scientific journals, it’s expected that I use Photoshop to organize the data. But I don’t even know where to start in Photoshop. My lack of skills are starting to border on fear, and it’s holding me back. Blogshop seems like a creative and non-intimidating outlet for me to conquer this!

    Laura says:

    Currently doing a little happy squirm thinking about winning this giveaway! I’m in the process of creating a travel + lifestyle blog to document my shift from substitute teacher to (what I truly consider myself to be) a professional wanderluster. I’ll be living in Rome this summer and winning this giveaway would allow me to gain ease in using Photoshop while documenting my time there. Thanks Blogshop + DesignLoveFest!

    Sarah Louise says:

    I am so excited about this giveaway, such a wonderful thing to do! Blogshop is the #1 thing on my list of things I want to do in the near future to expand my knowledge of photoshop and abilities as a blogger. After years of merely admiring blogs from the side lines, I finally decided to dive in head first with a blog of my own. Learning from you lovely ladies would be the bees knees <3

    I’ve always wanted to improve my Photoshop skills for my blog. And now that I have a little one, I’d love to improve my photo editing skills even more!

    Natalie says:

    Blogshop! Blogshop! Oh-Me-Oh-My How I would love to win a spot in blogshop. There are big changes happening in my life right now. The kind of changes that you don’t know where life might take you but you know that if you trust in the process it’s going to take you somewhere good. If I won a free awesome spot in blogshop I think it would give me the boost I need to start my blog. Yours and Angela’s enthusiasm would definitely brighten up my day and give me that push in the hinney that I need to get me started. Plus it would hopefully turn this spell of misfortune i’ve had into a great new adventure. Thanks for the giveaway!

    Jessica says:

    I’m looking to expand my beginner PS skills and take my blog to the next level. Having a job and a two year old leaves me little time to come to one in person (which I would prefer, but anyway). I’d like to be able to make blogging more of a career than a hobby and I think this would help me move toward that goal. Thanks!

    Meghan says:

    I have a blog, but it doesn’t have a cohesive look and is not as professional as I would like it to be. With the new skills I would learn, I would take my blog to the next level. Make it something really special!

    Alessandra says:

    I am a blogger and I would use my new skills to create better blog posts, collages and make my blog look better and more professional!

    Katy says:

    As the anniversary of my sewing blog approaches I’ve taken time to look over posts from the past year. I’m proud of the progress I’ve made, but blogshop would really help me to take my look and content to the next level. Fingers crossed!

    Kathy says:

    I want to win so that I can make my blog look stunning! Seriously, this would be my game changer!

    Katharina H. says:

    Dear Bri, dear Blogshop-Team,
    I most recently graduated with an M.A. in Arts and Media Management but a lack of Photoshop-skills. I’d really like to change that because I am sure that the chances to get my dream job will increase a lot after having attended one of your classes… You see, the timing for this giveaway couldn’t be any better! Your online Blogshop is a perfect fit for me since I do not only love and admire the work you’re doing but also live in Berlin and cannot attend one of the classes in the U.S..
    Thank you & all the best from Berlin
    Katha

    Robin says:

    I’m a blogger and a writer who’s never failed at expressing myself through clothing or words, but somehow I fall down when it comes to graphics. I’d love to improve the design on my blog, re-do my resume, and also start a portfolio site with the skills I’ll learn in Blogshop.

    Thanks!

    I would absolutely LOVE the chance to take the BlogShop course! As a fashion & lifestyle blogger from East Coast Canada, I was always bummed that the course was never offered in my neck of the woods! It would be great to take it from home! I would use my new BlogShop skills to enhance the pictures on my blog, re-design the theme so that everything coordinated, and make promotional items for my new videography business!!

    Tanvi S says:

    i live all the way in India, been following bri for nearly 2 – 3 years now, i really hope you come to Mumbai and host a class here, i am sure you will have a lot of takers.

    about how i would use the blogshop skills: host a blog about possible everything that mumbai is about without it looking like just a collection of instagram photos that i took + understand how to put these posts together such that they represent the emotion that i am trying to portray without going overboard or doing injustice to the topic.

    fingers crossed !!!

    yours truly – girl from mumb-eye (http://www.mumb-eye.com/)

    alice says:

    ohhh this would be so amazing! I have been looking at your in person classes for about a year now and the idea of an online one would be grand! I would use the BlogShop course to learn photoshop first and foremost so that the images on my blog look amazing and more professional. I am a stay at home mom who is trying to keep a creative spark alive and well while raising my son, not easy to do! so a beautifully curated class would push me into being more proud of my creative outlet. please pick me! I need the boost both creatively and emotionally!

    Jessica R says:

    I would gift this to a friend who has recently graduated and wants to start her own business and use her new blog to promote it. It would be excellent if she could take your class to improve her confidence, as she really is very talented!

    Lauren Wolfard says:

    I would love to win this for my husband, Cody. He has been working in a job that has given him a chance to learn photoshop, but I would love if he would be able to get a leg up with his skills. He has always wanted to be able to freelance and have a reason to purchase photoshop for himself, and I think this class is just the thing. He is very shy, so I think the online blogshop class would be absolutely perfect for him. He majored in international studies and still has such a passion for it; this class would give him a very unique opportunity to be able to delve into the world of his major, and come with a wealth of photoshop knowledge in his back pocket. Cody never spends money on himself, and being a poor newlywed couple, we just can’t scrape together enough money to afford photoshop and a class on how to use it. Thank you so much for considering us! Fingers crossed. Love – The Wolfards

    Theresa says:

    I would love to take the online BlogShop course. I began 2014 with every intention to follow my dreams and pursue a vintage fashion and lifestyle venture. I’ve already begun taking product shots and photo shoots. I would love to use this course to enhance my photoshop skills and create beautiful posts to connect with readers. This would be a blessing and a dream come true! Thanks for all that you guys do at DLF!

    kelsey says:

    this is amazing! i am a blogger and i’d love to make my posts, my photos, my general blog design so much better. they are skills that are really difficult to learn on your own with a full-time job and a limited budget. i’d so appreciate this opportunity!

    Parvina says:

    This is great! I have been wanting to take my brand and blog to the next level, I am always eager to learn and grow!

    Sarah says:

    I’m a graphic designer trying to learn to get my own blog going. I’d love to learn some new skills and tricks from some seasoned bloggers.

    Katie says:

    I would absolutely love to win a spot in the blogshop giveaway. I’m a blogger and I’m looking to improve my posts with better designed images and BlogShop would definitely kick my skills up several notches!

    catherine says:

    i’m involved with a really small festival and have just taken on the rather foolish task of looking after the site. i think it could very easily be loads better and would use blogshop to help me do that!

    Christopher says:

    My wife’s blog has been growing by leaps and bounds over the past year. We hope that, if it keeps up, she will be able to quit her day job and focus on blogging and design work full-time. While she already knows a lot about Photoshop, I think that there is never a point where a person can’t benefit from learning a little bit more. If I won, I use the class to make her dreams one step closer to reality.

    jaclyn says:

    I would use the skills I learn in blogshop to design my own online shop for a textile business I’m in the process of starting up!

    Tasha says:

    Taking blogshop is on my bucket list! I am an interior designer, working to start my own firm soon and I would love to further my knowledge in photoshop from my blog 🙂

    Amanda W says:

    This is so wonderful! I just quit a job that was extremely stressful and had a toxic environment to pursue starting my own marketing/communication consulting company! I am extremely excited to try and help small businesses start communicating about the value they add to their communities. Blogshop would really help me get a jump start on my website/blog development. While I would love to come experience one of your Blogshops in person, this online opportunity would be amazing. Thanks for being so generous!

    Emily says:

    I’m a design and illustration student who’s graduating in May (ah!). I’m in the process of setting up my website and hope to set up a blog/ online store. Any photoshop tips/tricks would be crazy helpful!

    Trying to find quality classes that teach you what is really important when blogging and how to design a inviting space for people to visit is hard. This would be a great opportunity to expand my knowledge and better my blog and small jewelry business. Good Luck to every one!!

    Carrie says:

    I’m dying to know how to make those animate gifs!

    Samantha says:

    I work for my family business and am basically creating a marketing position for myself through all of the work that I have done, but I want to continue to impress! Our website is fine, but it really needs a kick in the pants to stand out in our industry!

    Sara says:

    I would love to take part in Blogshop! I have been wanting to learn more Photoshop skills for a long time and would love to add more graphics to my blog, cloverdew.com. This would really be a great opportunity to learn how to develop my own aesthetic.

    Larissa says:

    I’m starting a small online business but I have limited skills on Photoshop, this workshop would really help me! Fingers crossed 🙂

    leann says:

    i have been dying to take blogshop for what seems like an ETERNITY now but somehow have not been able to cough up the extra cash. i stopped blogging since last year but have toyed with the idea of starting a new one sometime next month. i’d definitely use all the skills learned in class to start over and keep this one going for life!! thanks for hosting this contest, bri 🙂

    S Davis Legaux says:

    I have been honing party planning for a while and am getting ready to combine my this passion with a non profit. I especially need to leant the art of focused marketable blogging for both businesses to grab my audiences. Thank you for the opportunity as I have been eager to attend your class for a while.

    Cony says:

    Hi Bri! My name is Constanza and i`m from Chile! I have a blog and i`d love to have the opportunity to participate in this blogshop. I love design, fashion and crafts so this will help me a lot to gain knowledge. Thank`s a lot! Cariños, Cony

    tara says:

    oh my. I would just do a back flip if I won. I want to learn tricks and new ways to use photoshop. I love hearing how other people do things in this program, the possibilities are endless. I would use what I learn to design a new website, not to mention I would just love to meet new design friends.

    Courtney says:

    What a DREAM giveaway!
    I would use the blogshop class to further my skills so I can use those on my blog and work on branding my Etsy shop items!

    -Courtney

    Christine says:

    I’ve been dying to go to a Blogshop class for years… I’m a blogger myself and founder of a new network of bloggers in Chicago called the Windy City Blogger Collective. By day I work for a large technology company called Groupon, and by night I work on my blog The View From 5 ft. 2 and WCBC. I never realized when I was younger how much I love graphic design, websites, and photoshop but it’s truly my passion. I am still figuring it all out but in the mean time have to teach myself everything at night. I built my own website but desperately need to learn more and haven’t had the chance to come myself in person. I’d love a chance to take your course online and share in the Blogshop fun! Keep on doing what you guys are doing, you’re an inspiration to us all. xo

    Nastassja says:

    I would LOVE to be able to attend the Blogshop to further my design business and get a kick butt website/blog going.

    Tuere says:

    I am just getting started with blogging and intentionally learning the technology and skills early in the process to be efficient. Aesthetics are important to me and I want my blog to be visually appealing. Understanding how to use Photoshop as a tool to achieve this appeal and learning it from a blogger and expert is a great head start. And, I enjoy being a student and building new skills.

    I just started a new job–and they would LOVE for me to know Photoshop. I’m learning on my own, but this would be AMAZING! It would really help our blog posts, and help me be even cooler! Thanks for this great giveaway!

    Emma says:

    I have wanted to start a blog for a long time but I’ve been so afraid to put myself out there! I think blogshop would give me the confidence I need to get going! I’d love to learn more about photoshop and just some basic ins and outs. Great giveaway, as usual! Thank you!

    Vanessa says:

    I would use my new blogshop skills towards working on my new found creative outlet of photography. I’m not a blogger and do not own a small business, but I would love to learn new skills to work on my personal photographs and projects!

    I love love love your style & aesthetic at design love fest and I would be so stoked to learn from the pros and give my blog an updated ‘do’. So excited for the opportunity – I love being a loyal reader and always seeing the amazing things you have going on ♥

    Bailey Renz says:

    I work for my father’s small business, it’s been 14+ years now. I was a fine art major in college however I never had the opportunity to learn photoshop fully. I am actually in charge of the maintenance on our website and as I usually have very little time for creativity I rarely make art anymore. I really would love to learn these skills so that I might be able to start my own blog and I would love to use them at work to really get our website to pop! PS: I love your blog it is adorable and always has great content!!

    gracie says:

    I would love to do blogshop! I’m finishing my graphic design degree this year in Dublin and I want to start a blog to showcase my work, keep me motivated & connect with other lovelies! The thing is I have been reading blogs for so long, and the standard is so high that I’ve been lacking the confidence to start one. I know a bit of photoshop but would love more experience designing graphics for web layouts. People have said to me before that I should start a blog & it’s in my heart I’m just afraid, help!

    Emily M. says:

    I am a blogger and small business owner. I would use my new skills for enhancing my product images and my blog layouts. I think the most challenging thing about running an online retail shop is taking photographs that convey the texture, size, weight and true color of an item. Customers have to rely on images rather than being able to pick up a product to see and feel it’s quality. I think photoshop skills would be a wonderful asset to my business and my blog!

    I have a personal blog for 8 years now and I also help others to build and improve their online pages. I would love to improve my photoshop skills as they are so important to keep a nice and neet blog. Thank you so much for this giveaway!

    Gaby says:

    This is so awesome, I really need to polish some old skills and learn some new tricks. I’m starting an online business and this would be great to get my in photoshop shape for the challenge!

    Cortney Pritchard says:

    This would be so amazing. I currently work for a small business who would love for me to learn more creative ways to represent the shop & the items we specialize in. I have a B.A. In arts but my photoshop skills are definitely lacking.

    nora says:

    i would ♥ to participate in blogshop online! i manage/execute new media and design at work and always need to sharpen my photoshop skills, however we’re a small art nonprofit so it’s not always easy for us to afford some training. not to mention it would be great to learn more for my personal site and blog!

    Rowena says:

    A blogshop class would be a dream! A goal of mine for this year is to take my blog to the next level and this would be super helpful. Thanks for the opportunity!

    Allison says:

    I recently started my blog, allisonwonderlandblog.com, and would love to learn Photoshop to streamline and improve my photo editing skills and improve the quality of my posts. I was looking into an in person Blogshop seminar, but I live in Chicago. This would be amazing! Thanks, xoxo

    Beka Melville says:

    Hello!!! Im about to launch my blog and would love to make it even more kick ass! Smiles Beka

    Ariel says:

    I’m a new blogger who’d love to hone her photoshop skills! This would be fantastic! Fingers crossed!

    Saeyoung VU says:

    HI Blogshop.

    I am a huge fan of DLF and you. I am a former fashion designer and now a college professor in Los Angeles. I once reached out to Bree to possibly speak at the college I used to teach (FIDM). Bree, I am also an FIDM alumni.
    Currently, I teach at Woodbury University in Burbank and I also handle social media marketing for the Fashion Department. Even though I know how to build websites,
    http://www.woodburyfashion.com and a few more I’ve don in the past…., I would still love to take your class. I wanted to take your in person class but it just didn’t work out and your on-line course will be great. I am currently planning an annual fashion show for the university at Club Nokia in 5/8. We are inviting 1500 guest and would like to include you. Taking your class will be an amazing opportunity and I know it will help me with my marketing effort to promote the event via our website.
    Please please pick me!!!! Thank you.

    Heather says:

    I own my own small business and could really use the help on brushing up my photoshop skills. Adding efficiency can only help, right? 🙂

    Nicole says:

    As a new small business e-shop owner, I fully appreciate the power of beautiful photos and thoughtful design. I am in charge of starting and maintaining our company’s blog, and I am certain that the photoshop skills learned in blogshop will help me take our blog content and product shots to the next level. Thank you so much for the generous giveaway!

    Shawna says:

    I do not have a blog; however, I desperately want to carve out a creative spot online doing and talking about something that I love. I like what I do (for work), but I’m not in love with it. I believe that the Blogshop online workshop will be a great start to give me the confidence to create.

    We started a webzine a year ago and I’m working on a new blog now. This would certainly be really helpful!!!! I don’t know if the word is strong enought?!? Anyway… your blog is already so helpful that I say THANK YOU very much!

    jess says:

    I would use the skills I learned on Blogshop to be more creative in making images at for my work and for my personal photography!

    Nicola says:

    I finally managed to pluck up the courage today to ask my boss to reduce my full time hours so that I could focus on my ‘online services’ business. I’ve been manically working in the evenings and now I am excited to have the time to focus on what I love doing and that is helping Creatives carve out a beautiful space on the interwebs. I’d love to win a spot in Blogshop so that I can really give my clients the unique and eye catching space that they really deserve!

    Marcia says:

    Appreciative of beautiful photos and creative elements, I’d LOVE to take Blogshop to enhance my blog, Year: Twenty Nine, learn Photoshop (it’s been on my to do list for far too long!), and to learn something new –

    learning, and the ability to be creative? Sing. Me. Up.

    Dana says:

    I have so many visual designs floating around in my head and, sadly, no real idea how to implement them. I’ve been using a standard tumblr template for my blog and it’s just not very exciting. I would love the opportunity to learn much more in the Blogshop class!

    Alex says:

    I’ve casually dabbled in blogging but often given up because aesthetically I’m
    unable to produce visuals like I want. I’d love to take the class to beef up my photoshop skills and give me the extra motivation in blogging.

    Sarah says:

    I am a virtual assistant and I’d love to take Blogshop to be able to help clients with their design needs!

    Jaimie says:

    I would love love to win a free spot in the blogshop online class so I can better my skills at Adobe Photoshop for my blog! What an awesome giveaway! 😀

    Kelly René says:

    I just finished the Retail Merchandising + Product Development program at Florida State University and am making the big move from FL–>LA in just 4 days! (AHH!) I am beginning my career in the fashion industry at an international fashion house and dream of contributing to their art department. I also freelance on the side for friends, family and friends-of-friends via word of mouth. I offer all sorts of product and services with my graphic design and am always learning to better my skills. Blogshop has been an absolute dream and goal of mine, but the fee has held me back so far. I would simply be head over (stylish) heels if I was chosen to take this class. It’d be the perfect warm welcome to the West Coast!

    Laura B says:

    I would love to refine my photoshop skills and this would be the perfect reason to push me to finally start the blog I’ve been dreaming of for years! I need to pull the trigger and DO IT!

    Caitlin says:

    I would use my new skills to finally actually start a blog. I’ve been writing for years but still can’t seem to make the leap to blogging

    mar says:

    I need to refresh my photoshop skills for work as a brand developer…I haven´t been using psp professionally for a few years and I feel a little stuck! Help!

    Heather Anthony says:

    I’m a graphic designer and I love to continue to learn new tips and tricks. I’d also like to start a blog to promote myself and Blogshop would be a great kick in the pants to get me started.

    Azalea says:

    I would use my new skills to make the blog that I am launching for my business in April aMAZing! I know the basics of photo shop but I would really love to learn these blog specific skills because I am often at a loss of how to employ my skills to create beautiful things!

    Natalie says:

    I just started my own floral design business in January of this year. I am in love with the new life I created but want to be able to share my ideas and designs in a cleaner more professional manner. I want to take blog shop but it’s not in my small budget. Crossing my fingers!!

    Aida says:

    I had a handmade online shop back in Spain. My dream job was just starting to take form when my family and I moved to the States. Now I have to wait until my green card comes (which will take some more months) to start it over again. Meanwhile, I need to learn all that I can and I want to finally start the blog I’ve been dreaming about for years and that hopefully will support my business in the future. I think attending blogshop would help sooo much to build the skills and the confidence I need to make all of this happen! I want to do things right and would love to learn from the very people that inspire me every day. Thanks!!

    Marlene says:

    My dream (and plan) is to open and online & mobile shop and I definitely need to learn some photoshop skills to help make it as beautiful as possible!

    Megan says:

    This blogshop class would help me in so many ways! First of all, I have a small blog of my own that I would love to improve with some photoshop skills. Second, my dad owns a small business and I would love to use these skills to try to boost his business. Third, my husband is looking to start his own business so that he can finally leave his day-job that brings him so much grief and pursue interests that he is passionate about. I know that these skills will be invaluable in helping that dream come to fruition. Hoping I win…

    Brooke says:

    I would love to take my photography up SEVERAL levels. Thank you!

    Christine L says:

    I have so much content for a couple blogs I have going on. I would like to have that unique flare outside the standard blog templates. I’m a recreational artist and love to design, but not too familiar with web development. This workshop would really be a great starter kit for putting together and designing something more to my style. I’ve been wanting to attend the LA workshop in person but lately I don’t really have the time to block out for two days in the afternoon due to my work schedule. The online workshop would be great for me to work when I can during the odd/late hours I have free this weekend.

    Thanks for giving this opportunity 🙂

    Fiona says:

    Hi! 🙂 I took the blogshop video course in person and loved it! I’d like the opportunity to take the full course. I know Photoshop, but I’m always open to learning new tricks or skills and applying that to my website. Would also love the photography tricks as well since the video course did that so wonderfully! Thank you!! 🙂

    I’d love to attend blogshop. I’m a sewing blogger by nights and weekends, but as I wrap up my PhD in biochemistry, I’m planning on making sewing a full-time venture. I want to start my own pattern company and I think that having a beautiful engaging blog is an important of crafting an online identity. I spend every spare moment I can snatch sewing or blogging and I would love to have the skills from blogshop in my tool belt to make my obsession prettier. Thanks!

    Winning a spot on blogshop online would stop me procrastinating with my blog/ website! I’m a new mum/ new business owner with a big to-do list. X

    Kat says:

    We’re totally re-vamping our online presence at my office, and I would love to learn some great Photoshop skills to help with this big transition! Plus it would really impress my boss 🙂

    laura says:

    Wow, what an opportunity! I always wanted to attend a blogshop because I do believe that it would help me immensely with my blog. I started my blog to share my life with people and for some time now I feel stuck, I try to work on my photography skills and I would love to create something that’s my own…I would make me so happy to be able to finally bring across more with my pictures! I think the first thing I would do, is make a little picture for the about me section…I’m getting excited and keeping my fingers crossed! Thanks Bri!

    Hi Bri, I’d love to learn skillz to take my blog to the next level and tips for blogging for efficiently! xo, Anna

    Lauren Bennett says:

    I would take this blogshop class because I have a need to create!! Photoshop has been patiently sitting in my Applications folder just waiting for me to explore its possibilities. Taking the online blogshop would not only help in making my blog look amazing but would also give me much needed creative confidence. 🙂 Thanks for offering this opportunity!!

    Joey says:

    I’ve wanted to do your blogshop for so long, but haven’t been able to find an opportunity to attend. I’ve just rebooted my blog and have recently launched an online secondhand shop (http://octoberroseboutique.com; reopening April 1st) that I know could use that extra boost of knowledge to make better posts and have better quality photos. The March blogshop would come just in time for the product reshoots I have to do and all of the blog posts I have lined up for the upcoming month. I really hope to win this opportunity. Thanks for offering this up, Bri!

    Lauren says:

    Hello! I would absolutely LOVEEEEE to win a place! I am an interior designer based in Oxford, England. I am currently working on designing a new website with a blog and I’d just love the chance to learn from you. I have been dreaming of being able to afford the course for a few months now (unfortunately I have a £100 budget for getting the website up and running) and it would mean so much to me to have the opportunity to be on the course. Plus…I could then write a blog post for all of my lovely UK blog friends about how amazing the course is! 🙂
    Fingers and toes crossed….xx

    Roxy says:

    thank-you so much for this giveaway! I’ve been DYING to take a blogshop class, and am so grateful you offer them online now. not only do I run a blog, but I’m trying to kick off my own business (selling my artwork). so not only do I need it when photographing my artwork, but to get my shop off the ground and running!! xo

    Justyna says:

    I’m a founder and designer of my own jewelry line, House of Bauble, and would love to bring my modern and versatile designs to life through images and blog posts. I want to learn the tips and tricks to creating eye catching layouts, images and type. Since my online customers can’t feel and try on my baubles, I think it’s really important that my baubles are well captured and presented online. I’ve been wanting to sign up for Blogshop since you started, but as a young designer, I am not financially able to invest in this great opportunity at the moment. The style brought to each of your sessions inspires me and fits beautifully with my vision for House of Bauble. Thanks Bri for this amazing opportunity!

    I have been coveting the blogshop classes for quite sometime now! I am a brand new blogger, and am really looking for direction on how to make my blog stand out. As a young, junior interior designer living in San Francisco, I’ve had to turn additional resources over to my professional interior design licensing. It would be so nice to be able to take this class just for my blog!

    Thanks!

    Rachel says:

    Considering that my photo’s are always slightly suckish, I feel I could really benefit from your expertise. I have a blog that I would love to showcase quality photos on and also to make my everyday photos better. I so hope I win.

    Vintagehoneybee.blogspot.com

    Laura says:

    From all the reviews I’ve read/heard about blogshop I feel like it would be beneficial to anyone who has creative interests! I freelance graphic design and photography and I would love to learn some more things, especially from you guys!

    Susan says:

    I am so excited about this! What a great idea! I’ve been wanting to take your blogshop class for a long time now and am always checking if you’re coming to London UK again. I’m an interior designer with a brand new blog and will be launching my own interior design firm in the very near future. I know the basics of photoshop, but would LOVE to learn tips and tricks so I can work faster and have better results! I can’t think of a better thing to win 🙂 Cheers!

    Lexi says:

    oh man. my blog is sad. I want it to be a place where people look forward to going, but I don’t even want to go there! I think learning these skills would take my blog to a level that would inspire me to blog more and create visually interesting content.

    I would use blogshop to improve and expand my blog. I have great photo equipment, but could really use some info in the area of processing. I would also use it to better brand my business!

    jenni c says:

    Hey! Beauty makes the world go round and I want to beautify my husbands site, he’s a handyman. who says a handyman’s work can’t be beautiful?!? love all you do with beautifying the world wide web 😉

    Janelle says:

    I think this is fate! I was THIS close to signing up for the February online Blogshop, but was leaving to go out of town that day and knew I wouldn’t be able to dive into like I wanted to. I have a design & styling business and would love to learn how to create better mood boards for them, and I’m looking to take my blog to a new level this year and I know this would help tremendously with that. Thanks so much for the opportunity to win!

    Oh I would love love love to win this! I too run a blog, and would love to up the ante on my photoshop skills!
    xo

    Layken says:

    I have been blogging for a little over a year now,have recently started an etsy store, and I am a graphic designer and photographer. The ways I could use the skills you teach in your Blogshop classes are endless! Not only do I want to learn new tricks but how to use the skills I might already know in a more affective way. I would love to one day be able to fully support myself through a job I am fully passionate about and learning the skills you can teach me in the Blogshop workshop is a huge step in that direction! Thank you so much for this give away!

    Vy says:

    I’d love to win so that I can be able to help my company out when they are in short of freelancers!

    Sarah Cooley says:

    I have a small business and I know I need to step up my game for blog content. I think taking blogshop would give me the confidence to create great visual content.

    sbort says:

    I DESPERATELY NEED THIS! i am an independent composer/performer who runs my own (very successful) website BUT IT ALWAYS LOOKS REALLY CRAPPY. i can never get it just right, and it needs to be awesome – and i need flyers, and postcards, and online advertisements for cd’s and projects and all of that – and i always have to hire people because i’m so bad at graphic design. if i could only know a LITTLE bit more about photoshop (my skillz are basic but i have good instincts with baaaaaaad execution, somehow…) i could save myself (literally) thousands of dollars and COUNTLESS hours every year by doing all my design right the first time, and not having to always hire someone to fix what i’ve done, because 400 tries later- i still can’t get it right. i’ll take the online class either way, but winning this would help me SO much right now 😉 i’m about to release a new album and need to redesign everything to go along with it! THANK YOU! always a huge fan <3 <3 <3 xxo

    oh oh! what an awesome giveaway 😀 i’ve always wanted to take a blogshop class! i would use my new skills to make my blog better, take it to a new level and grow creatively!

    mollie says:

    I am a graphic designer but managed to never master photoshop. I would love the help! I want my blog to look more polished and I think this class would do the job 🙂

    Lisa flood says:

    I would use what I learn to add beauty
    to my blog and life xx

    Esther says:

    I have wanted to participate in a Blogshop class since your very first offering, but haven’t had the funds to do it. Would love to win a spot in your online class. I have a blog that I don’t keep up with too often, because I am never quite sure of which direction I want to take with it. Would love to get inspired by one of your classes, to really do something with my blog. Thank you for the awesome giveaway!

    Erin says:

    I am a new blog and also trying to start a business and I have been eyeing your classes since they first started. I follow bloggers that have been and I can such a huge difference when they get back. Winning a spot in the online class would be a huge weight off my shoulder with all the expenses that go in to having your own business. It would be the cherry on top to my blog and business. Thank you so much for the opportunity.

    Lauren says:

    I would love to refresh my skills and make life a little prettier. 🙂

    taryn says:

    i have been letting fear get in the way. (so lame!) i read a quote recently about hustle beating talent if talent does not hustle. i am ready to HUSTLE.
    i would use these skills to help jumpstart my photography career//blog. i am right on the edge of greatness (i can feeeeel it!), ready to take the leap! let’s go!

    Laura says:

    Serena says:

    This is such an exciting and great giveaway! After talking for MANY years about starting a blog, it is finally coming to fruition in 2014! One of my first New Years resolutions to actually execute ever! Right now the creative is under development and I need to be prepared with my blogging skills when it is up and running.

    Alexandra Purvis says:

    I’m a college student pursuing web design…and I have a budding interest in photography! Being comfortable in photoshop would allow me so much more creativity with both those things! And besides, it would just be fun! 🙂

    I would so love to make my blog look even better! This would be so fun♥

    Tiffany B. says:

    I would use what I learn to my blog and my small business website. I took design classes in College but I have been out of the photoshop game for a while and would love to learn new tricks!

    arden b. says:

    I am a recent college graduate with a degree in apparel. I’ve been wanting to start a blog for so long. I’ve played around and have tried multiple times and have learned a lot… but not near enough. I want to use blogging as my creative outlet for me and to inspire others. I’ve been wanting to attend a blogshop class SO BAD. I recently moved to NY and am so excited that you have classes here! Now it’s just to save the money. If I were to win I know what I would learn from the class would not only help me grow creatively with my blog journey but also in my professional world as well. I’d love the opportunity!

    Tori Anne says:

    The things I would do to win this!! My husband and I are both full time college students and we have a little girl due in June! I have a really great camera and I have the adobe programs I just don’t have a clue how to use them!! I have been dying to learn photoshop before the little miss gets here, but since we are both students and having a baby we don’t have three hundred extra dollars to spend on a photoshop class. (I wish!!) Thanks for the chance to win, you guys are great:)

    Alexandra says:

    To jump start my blogging and make a small piece of the Internet a prettier place 🙂

    Gillian says:

    I would love to use Blogshop to create a blog/ book that documents my grandma’s recipes : ) hoping to learn some photoshop skills to make her and her food look great and can’t wait for her to see herself online. Love what you do bri

    Ana P says:

    Jaime says:

    What an amazing opportunity! I would be thrilled to win this….not only am I completely obsessed with everything Bri does, but it would really help take my business to the next level. I am a wedding designer and I recently rebranded and separated from my business partner. I spent most of my budget trying to find the right person to redesign my website and after two failures I should finally have something anazing up in the next month. The timing of this workshop is perfect and I would be honored to have the opportunity to learn from the best to develop my blog and enhance my business that I have poured my (wild) heart and soul into!

    Mia says:

    Wow I could use some blogshop in my life right about now. I’m a newbie freelance interior designer/stylist and photographer in Denver, recently back in the work force after a hiatus with my little girl, and would love some advice about creating a web page to help get across to my clients my style and personality. If I win I’d love to put what I’d learn in action with a fun new exciting way to show off my work and tell the world who I am and what I do! 😉

    Kendra says:

    I would love to participate in Blogshop to make my freshly launched blog more accessible to my friends and peers (college students) and not just the blogging community. I also think Blogshop would add some much needed sparkle and general splendidness to my blog to help me set it apart from other food and lifestyle blogs. Thanks for the amazing giveaway!

    Alison says:

    OMG I am in serious need of the blogshop class and would absolutely be joyful to win this. I love that you have made it more affordable, although it is still very high for my needs. I would use the skills to improve the graphics and photos on my blog. These skills really would have come in useful last night after spending hours trying to figure out youtube videos on photoshop. I hope I win!!! Thanks so much for doing a giveaway.

    Kim says:

    I’m actually signing my sister up for this…

    She has a dream to start a cooking blog, and I couldn’t think of anything more perfect for her. She is a very creative girl at heart, and she doesn’t get enough opportunities to flex that muscle. This would be the ultimate opportunity for her to charge ahead with this goal. She is the MOST hard-working 24-year old out there, and she deserves to create something that she’s really proud of and that she did herself. A little photoshop finesse, combined with her cooking ability and drive, could create a real masterpiece. Help my sista out!

    I’d love to learn from because you have the style I love; I am a creative who needs to improve PS skills in order to achieve my goals – personally and professionally. I also love to attend classes, learning and knowledge are my passions. Online – and through a giveaway – is the only way I can have it now, so it would be lovely to win! Thank you for the opportunity to dream about it!! 🙂

    Kassandra says:

    I have always admired Bri for starting blogshop and am so happy and excited for how much it’s blown up over the years. And naturally I have always wanted to take a class, but I would use my skills not only to improve my blog in the making but also for my small business I plan to start this year. I just want to home in on my graphic design skills to make it look beautifully magnificent 🙂

    Kirstie says:

    I would love to take blogshop and learn new skills for the card shop I run! Though I’m quite proud of my current designs, I’m always looking for new ways to improve on my skills!

    Bri Towne says:

    I would use my new skills to create a logo and brandingfor the boutique I’m working on opening soon!

    Eunice says:

    I’ve been an on- and off-blogger for years now, and I believe that I’ve just lacked the know-how in Photoshop enough to get the ball rolling completely. It would be a fantastic opportunity to learn the ropes from DLF/Blogshop tips and tricks!

    Sara Stoff says:

    I am a blogger and new photographer and would love to become more familiar with photoshop. I would LOVE this opportunity.

    Adonna says:

    I would love to win a free blogshop. I wanna learn the tricks in making cool gifs through photoshop. I also wanted to learn the proper way of editing in photoshop. Thank you so much! Goodluck to everyone!

    Mallory says:

    I run an online business via Etsy, but want to expand to include both a blog and website. I use Photoshop everyday, but am still pretty clueless on how to use it to its full capacity! I’ve been wanting to take the online Blogshop course for a while now, so this giveaway is AMAZING!

    I want to make my content and photos stand out from other blogs on the web. I blog on the side, mostly about food and fashion, but it’s an NYC lifestyle blog. I am having trouble enhancing my photos and making them truly great.

    Lauren says:

    Online Blogshop would be totally helpful to me in order to help in developing materials of visual interest for my new photo booth company called Tickled. As a former blogger, I’ve always wanted to attend Blogshop, but now I really NEED to!

    Lis says:

    I would love to attend Blogshop! I have been dreaming it about a long time. I’m freelance graphic designer and I would love to learn new tips and tricks. I’m sure I would get so much inspiration from your awesome Blogshop.

    Lisa Nguyen says:

    My family and I will be moving to singapore from the bay area and we want to start a family lifestyle blog. We want it to be a great resource for people and want to share our love of food and travel and cute things we find and love. This will help us plan and think about the look and feel as well as be immerse in Photoshop. Thanks!!

    Jessica says:

    This is such a kind offer – thank you!! I need to refresh my Photoshop skills, badly! I use it for work a ton, and want to be able to expand my freelance work – and need to feel much more confident in my use of Photoshop to do so.

    Thank you!

    Kelli Martin says:

    What a great opportunity and generous offer to give away a spot to your blog class! I would love to take advantage of this offer and start my own blog spot to feature all of the amazing independent artist & business owners I know. Learning how to correctly Blog has been a passion for the last year and I have not gotten the chance to seize the day! I would love to share some daily thoughts and great works via this type of social media. I would also love to learn to edit my photos & display a love of my life! Thanks for the offer!

    Alison S says:

    I realized that I needed to learn photo shop when I started designing my wedding website. So many pictures, headers, graphics that I wanted to include but they all needed a little (or a lot) of work. I hope to parle this website into a personal blog where my future hubby and I can document and share our adventures with friends and family. I work for a company where we are constantly blogging and posting projects so not only am I learning about photography, but turning those pictures into pretty content is key. This class would be a perfect jumping off point. Fingers crossed!!!

    Stephanie says:

    As a photographer everyone assumes I must be a wiz at photoshop – but I’m self taught and only know the bear essentials. I’d love to take blogshop and learn to do things the right way as well as be inspired to present my images in a more interesting way. I have designed and created virtually all my marketing materials and website myself and while they are OK, I think this course could help me rebrand and grow my small business.

    Danielle says:

    I’ve been wanting to take Blogshop for a while now. I have my own blog and have a shop in the works so I would love to learn new techniques and tricks!

    What a wonderful gift! I am constantly trying to update my skillset. My company would love for me to be more fluent in Photoshop. I am constantly trying to offer more complex digital solutions–it would be awesome to have the skills to back that up.

    Jennifer says:

    THIS WOULD BE A DREAM \\ honestly – I have been saving my money to attend !! This would make my year to be able to attend !! I think you guys are so talented & would help BEAUTY GLAM NOW become even better !!

    I hope hope hope BGN can win!

    Love ya girls -XOXO

    Liz says:

    I developed a love for fashion and design while spending endless hours in doctors’ offices and waiting rooms – my mom was diagnosed with stage IV cancer three years ago, and I dropped out of my creative writing program to become her primary caretaker. Unfortunately, my mom lost her fight this summer and it’s time for me to resume the trek toward a career. I would love to pursue something in design, but Photoshop is so incredibly daunting and complex! Discovering your Blogshop classes was so encouraging, and I would feel so lucky to be involved in one. Thanks for this opportunity!

    yehsong says:

    I would love to be a part of the online blogshop class. I want to break into the design scene and have very little design background, so I’d love to have some skills so that I can apply to positions in design companies with greater confidence!

    Chrystina says:

    I’m a blogger and would love to learn more about getting more stylistically similar pictures on my blog and I think developing these skills could help lead me in the right direction.

    Ilaria says:

    I want to give to my blog the “wow” factor!

    Madeline says:

    this would be so exciting to win! i have recently started my own blog, love photography, and am an interior designer. i really want to improve my photoshop skills and hear what others bloggers’ methods. thank you!

    Sentrell says:

    I would like to win a spot at blogshop because I would like to improve my website as well as my blog. I stopped blogging last year because I wanted to refocus and define my goals. I am also in the process of starting seperate niche website. I want to use the skills from this class to design captivating posts. I am starting my small business and I want it to be fun and functional for future and current clients.

    Mel says:

    I’d really like to learn how to animate GIFs, and hopefully pick up any other shortcuts, tricks of the trade that Photoshop can offer my blog. Plus, you ladies are a great inspiration!

    Rachel B. says:

    I’m currently an art direction student and Chicago Portfolio School. I think Blogshop would help sharpen my design skills.

    Christine F says:

    I’d love to learn how to use photoshop so I can create moodboards for my event clients! I’d love to find a way to concisely communicate the vision together.

    Jennifer says:

    I use my blog as promotion for my business, and notice that it brings in 10x the traffic that my company website does! I need to make sure that I’m creating the best blog presence possible and driving traffic to my website. I need Blogshop’s help! Thanks for providing such a useful giveaway 🙂

    Carissa Lyn says:

    Hello,

    I am absolutely lovin’ this giveaway because I will be going back to school next year and the funds are too limited to allow me to attend a class!

    I would use this class to up my skills as far as blog posts and even creating new formats for my blog! I have always loved photoshop but feel the need to learn more about it. My mother is also now taking my photos for outfit posts and sometimes they need a little touch up here and there because she’s not the best with a camera.

    Thanks for this opportunity to enter this giveaway!

    xoxo,

    What an awesome opportunity! My husband and I are launching our graphic design studio tomorrow, and one big feature will be a blog for other creatives; a way for us to showcase our process, create tutorials, give insight to our lives etc… and this would be a fantastic opportunity to learn what it takes to bring your blog to the next level.

    I’m excited!

    Charlotte says:

    I’m a small business owner and love every part of it – from making my jewelry to creating the brand material. I’d love to learn everything blogshop has to offer to help make my ideas to come life!

    Karen S says:

    I’m trying to open up my own shop in the next half year or so and I could really use some brushing up on my Photoshop! This sounds like an amazing opportunity.

    Maren says:

    Though I’ve been slowly trying to improve my graphic design skills over the past year for my personal blog, I would love to really learn about it in Blogshop — my Photoshop & InDesign skills are sadly limited!

    Norma Sandoval says:

    I have to admit that i don´t have a blog, yet. I have so many ideas on my mind but the thing is i´m kind of scared of starting one, since i have no idea how to start. Been watching you guys over instagram and the blog and it´s really inspiring to see all the things that can be done. This could be a perfect beginning to a new adventure. Greetings from MEXICO City. 🙂

    Tricia Young says:

    I just started a blog and would love to learn how to improve it’s appearance.

    Debby says:

    I am currently working full-time and going to graduate part-time for chinese medicine. I would love to use the Blogshop skills to start my own blog to share about what I’ve learned in chinese medicine school – tips on eating, lifestyle, herb supplements, do’s and don’ts of acupuncture, etc. But – I want this information to be easily laid out – and easily digestible on the eyes!

    I feel this Blogshop could really help me gain a lot of the skills I need because I simply don’t have enough hours in a day to learn on my own between work and school.

    Chelsea says:

    I work with all guys (true story) and although I can’t really channel my inner love for ballet flats, polka dot minis, and cupcakes on our company’s website… I can do so on my own. That being said, this would be a great tool and creative outlet for me.

    Just recently, I dumped out the piggy bank and purchased my first real investment… a camera (Canon T2i)! Unfortunately, that means I’m back to square one when it comes to saving up to attend your class. UGH.

    Anywho – I admire you both for being such great entrepreneurs and I’d love to join you over the web if you’ll have me. 🙂

    Thanks! xo.

    Jenna says:

    TEACH ME YOUR MAGICAL WAYS. I want to be internet-popular. Like you. I could only take this class rn if it were given to me for free (yeah yeah, you’ve heard that) but I have photoshop on my laptop and I would use the new knowledge to make mad visual delights suitable for the thirsty visual sponges of the internet like myself. Also I’m interested in data-visualization techniques but I’m not getting a strong nerdy vibe from your usual clientele so it’s okay if you don’t really touch on that. PICK ME, BUDS! 🙂

    amy feminella says:

    Bri & Angela,
    I’d love to be able to take your course. I have tended bar for many years, but consider myself first and foremost, an entrepreneur and {most importantly} a mommy! I adore your aesthetic and perspective and I know I could gain a lot seeing, and learning, through your eyes.
    I’m working with a start up, and have a plans for something of my own as well. It’s been years since I worked for myself and it’s my goal to do it again. I want not only to set a good example for my daughter, but to have more quality time with her too.
    {hand raised in the air – pick me! pick me!}

    Gloria says:

    Hi there!

    I would love an opportunity to win an online version of blogshop! I work in PR and have spent the last five years connecting brands (clients) with amazing bloggers like so many commenting here, but have never had the courage to work on my own. I recently set a goal to start blogging more regularly and even purchased CS5 to teach myself the tools of the trade. Would love this chance to become a smarter blogger along with all of you!

    alyssa says:

    nothing is more frustrating than seeing a concept or idea in your head and not being able to translate it into photoshop in a timely matter! if i won, this girl promises to hit the ground running on her blog and to use her skills at work (two birds, one stone- right?!)

    I use my nutrition degree to blog about tasty, healthy treats and would loooove to take the class to help advance my minimal experience in Photoshop. I want my blog to look as professional and classy as possible and would love your help 🙂

    Emily says:

    I would love to become a better blogger and be able to freelance the skills learned here. Not only would it be helpful for my family’s income, but a perfect opportunity to be creative while not taking too much time away from my beautiful kids. Thank you thank you for the opportunity!

    Meg K says:

    What a great giveaway! I’d use my blogshop-bonanza-knowledge to not only add polish to my own blog and portfolio – but to keep honing my skills & use them to help add shine to my client work too!

    Thanks y’all!

    Tammy says:

    I would love the opportunity to learn all I can from you guys! I’ve been in need of a blog to show my photography work for future clients as well as other ventures. I’m in love with your work and am eager to learn more about this process and how you make it so visually beautiful every time I visit your site. Please pick me! I need you guys!

    Nikki says:

    I would love to win a spot. I could use these skills both for my personal style blog and for my job. Learning Photoshop is so empowering. It would really help me brand myself and take my side gig of blogging to the next level. I could make my style posts so much more exciting and pretty… and thoughtful. Honestly, right now, photoshop to me is pretty much MS Paint. I haven’t really explored all the possibilities of it. I actually work with a bunch of creative types and I feel like I am not pulling my own weight around here. Give me the confidence to pull this off. You guys are so talented. Everyday my eyeballs are being blessed by the perfectly curated instagram posts. I wanna be there! I NEED these skills.

    Kate says:

    I know enough about Photoshop to be dangerous – but I always like to learn from others because I don’t believe I use it as efficiently as I could. I work in a corporate setting and would love to do something more creative on the side like this. Thank you!

    Desiree says:

    I’m eight years into a corporate career that is slowly sucking my soul! I’ve just started a blog and have made the commitment to follow through on a dream I’ve had for a couple of years now. I just signed up for the March 15 & 16 workshop last week!

    Meg says:

    My sister and I have just started a blog and I would LOVE to learn some of your Photoshop tricks to make our blog as beautiful as possible. You are a source of great inspiration, so this is an opportunity I couldn’t pass up!

    Alicia says:

    I am director of a non-profit in Jackson, Wyoming, our mission is to reduce petroleum consumption in the transportation sector, improve air quality and derease our reliance on foreign oil. Currently our communication pieces are very data driven, probably a little overwhelming and perhaps boring. (If I lost you during our mission statement, you are not the only one!) I would love to use blog shop skills to launch a more friendly and understandable communications campaign. I would create visuals that are relatable and tell a story. I would absolutely love to take a blogshop class and have been eyeing them since you began offering them, it is just isn’t in our non-profit budget. Thank-you for this opportunity!

    Lucy says:

    I write a little DIY fashion and lifestyle blog and am looking to start a little business with a DIY craft shop. My head is full of ideas but I need a way of working them out online, I love blogging but get frustrated with my lack of confidence and self belief. I would love the opportunity to take part in a blog shop, and think it will just the boot up the bum I need! Snazzy, jazzy blog come at me! Thank you for the opportunity.

    I would just about DIE for this win!! I am a florist working for my mom who owns a boutique flower shop in Elk Grove California (we’re right up by Sacramento) and I also have a blog I’ve been working on for two years now. I would use these skills to update my mom’s business platforms and my blog to fashion and floral as well! I am so inspired by your work and would love to learn and grow more! I went to school for interior design and have used photoshop before but that was ages ago and I’m so rusty 🙁 Winning this blogshop would be such a pinch me moment!

    xo
    Thanks for the wonderful opportunity!

    Chelsie

    Kendall says:

    I would love a chance to learn how to make my vision a reality in a creative world. !!!!!!

    Jessica says:

    I would LOVE to partake in a BlogShop event – I have been working towards maintaining a photo/design blog for the past few months but I’ve heard that attending a blogshop class will really help me in that. This is my year to MAKE things happen!

    Meg says:

    The Photoshop Blogshop class teaches all the items on my list to learn to do in photoshop. I finally purchased photoshop cloud, after four years is David up for a Mac and the program. The opportunity to take this class would give me the skills to turn my visions into reality and finally be able to create photographs and layouts that represent my brand, and my furniture designs. I would be eternally grateful and excited beyond measure! I would start with creating my a blog header that I could be proud to show off! I’m desperate and shameless! Please pick me!
    Thank you for the opportunity!
    Meg

    Julie says:

    I’m the go to graphics gal for our small business, and while I’m pretty great at InDesign, I really need help in Photoshop. This class would just really help me sharpen those skills that are dull right now for me. Plus being able to make more beautiful blog posts would be a huge bonus. I hope I win – thanks for the opportunity!

    Aaleen says:

    I would love to win a spot in blogshop online to enhance on my current blogging knowledge. I recently started a new lifestyle blog as a creative outlet amongst graduate school monotony. I would love to embellish my work with Blogshop-acquired skills and fun. I love the vibrant, inviting aesthetic and this sort of inspirational boost could be exactly the sparkle I need in my life.

    Thank you for the opportunity.

    Bex Beltran says:

    This is so wonderful! I know I’ve got more creativity locked inside me and the class would help me pull it out and really see how far I can go- I’m just in the beginning of starting to understand how to use technology to be even more creative and I’m so excited because I’ve always felt a little stifled before. Thanks for the chance!

    Jessica says:

    As a small business owner, I know it really rounds everything out to have a really great blog. I am trying to start blogging, but I get frustrated when I can’t bring my vision to life. I’m hoping that with all my new blogshop skills I can finally have the confidence in what I’ve learned to launch the new blog to help out my new business.

    Sarah says:

    Our small, family owned real estate office needs a fresh new way to present local listings and information. Many thanks and would love the opportunity!

    Larah Winn says:

    Hi! I started a lifestyle blog this past year with great feedback but life got in the way of the lifestyle blog. I’m looking to relaunch it within the next month or two to serve as a lifestyle blog but also showcase my stationery, wedding invitation and graphic design pieces. The ultimate goal is to grow my freelance business. I have a design background, but I’d really love to polish my photoshop skills (I’m mostly comfortable in illustrator)and grow more confident in my photo editing. I’m a 27 year old creative with a new job that is finally allowing me to balance my time between work, life and what I’m passionate about. I’m still learning, but I would love the opportunity to learn more in blogshop from teachers I can truly relate to and admire.

    Stephanie says:

    I would really love to win a place in the Blogshop. Being a poor student from the UK it’s been impossible to go to any of these in the past. I’d love to get my blog up and running properly and being a Graphic Design student I feel that this would be an amazing opportunity for me… plus I love you guys. Designlovefest is my ultimate favourite blog and a massive inspiration to me 😀

    Chloe Guy says:

    I’d love to start my own blog and me and my sister are looking into creating our own homemade soap business!

    Laura B says:

    Oh my gosh! What a fantastic giveaway! Thank you so much! I own a small creative business that focuses on lifestyle photography and writing services. Being able to attend BlogShop is something I’ve wanted to do for AGES but the budget has never quite been there. I would use the new skills I learn to pretty up my blog posts and marketing materials for sure! Thank you so much for the opportunity to attend Bri! xo

    Leslie Greenwalt says:

    My husband and I are both small business owners & have been searching for a way to grow and advertise our business. I believe this class could be the start to an amazing career changer for us!

    Don O. says:

    I just recently started my blog which has become my diary of sorts. Adventures and misadventures of a mother of 3 living in Singapore and documenting her children’s day-to-day activities while trying to fullfil my own dreams and passions- such as baking and anything about the home. What drove me to blog is because my hubby is away on long business trips and this is my way of encapsulating what he has missed while he was away. Something to look at when he feels homesick. This is also to share more about our life in this beautiful country we live in. While I am busy with the kids I also work from home- as a Brand Manager. With 3 kids and being responsible for most household chores, I know that this course would definitely up my game and boost my confidence both at work and personally. I know I can improve on what I currently have now and I have been a huge fan of your blogs and would love to learn from people I admire!

    Grace says:

    Hello!!

    I would love to win a spot in Blogshop because I am trying so desperately to navigate on my own which can be so discouraging!! I’ve gone through a lot of life change in the past year or so, from graduating school, getting married, moving across the country, and working full time, life has been full of transitions…but it’s made me realize what I love doing, which is blogging! I don’t have a ton of time at the end of the day to put towards it, and all I want to do is post but I’m getting caught up and stuck in the technical details! It’s my ultimate desire to be able to make a sustainable living off of it, but there is SO much that I still have to learn to be able to turn that dream into a plausible reality. Please help me get there! I have so much in my mind that I want to branch out and do…I just need the skills to do it! Yessss pick me!

    Amy says:

    Blogshop is where its at! My boyfriend recently started a fun sock company that makes knee high socks with fun/cute sayings on them that are primarily used for working out but can be worn anywhere! Would love to donate some to the next blogshop as well for giveaways! <3 He's been working so hard to get his foot in the door and I realize how important marketing and presentation is with merchandise. I would use this class to help snazz up his website and create thoughtful posts that can really catch the eye of our consumers! I also am a health nut and want to start my own paleo/healthy food blog to inspire others to be the best they can truly be 🙂
    Learning is the spice of life!!! Any chance to expand my mind, count me in!
    Cheers!
    Amy

    Calia says:

    This is amazing! Thanks Bri for the opportunity.

    This would help out our little vintage clothing blog KindredLovely so much. I want to learn so much more about photography and photoshop and have been wanting to take your class for ages now.

    You’re such an inspiration. I love all of the detail and time you put into your work. I want to learn your skills but also learn how to create my own methods for making killer blog content!

    I want a crash course on Graphic Design and Blogshop is just that but even more.

    Hope I get this chance!!

    Jen says:

    My company that I worked at for four years closed down this past November. I have been able to take this time to finally continue to chase down my dream of photography, I am currently a stay at home mom for two girls. Watching my oldest grow up so quickly has made me realize the importance of simple photography and capturing the raw details that each child individually holds. Blogshop would give me the tools I need to grow and market myself through social media. I unfortunately know nothing about Photoshop or anything that really goes on behind the scenes of the magical blog world. Thank you!

    Britani says:

    I would love to have the opportunity to take this amazing class! I have had my eye on this class for a while now but just have not been able to fit it in the budget. My friend and I have been wanting to start an Easy shop as well as a blog focusing on DAY projects as well as other beauty and lifestyle topics. This would be the perfect way to get us started!

    Stephanie says:

    I would love to use my new found photoshop skills to make my blog extra spiffy plus help me to create some gorgeousness for my small business website I’m hoping to launch before then end of the year 🙂

    Heidi says:

    First off, THANK YOU for offering this giveaway. I have had my eye on blogshop classes, and have been saving up money for this awesome investment, so this would be a great jump start. I am a freelance graphic designer and I am in the process of re-branding myself to expand my range of clientele and skills. Starting a blog is an important part of the process and this class would really help me to start strong. <3

    HELLO! I’m a blogger who blogs about interior design, food and all things pretty! I am in the process of starting up an interior design/wedding planning business and I think that adding photoshop skills from the adorable BLOGSHOP girls would just be the icing on top of my brand new business! I think that the knowledge gained from the this class would amplify what I am able to offer to my blog, my new clientele and those who surround me on a daily basis to a degree that I could not even fathom! Thank you so much for this opportunity!

    Manon says:

    Hoooooo dreams come true ! I am in love of Blogshop since I discover it 1 year ago… I love the beauty of your works girls ! I begin my DIY blog 15 days ago and it would be perfect for me to begin with your classes …
    Of course I do not have the patience to wait for your coming in Paris during the year !

    Love love loveeeeeeeee from France …
    Manon

    (Thank you sooooo much for this opportunity)

    Paige says:

    Oh, this is my dream. I am a small business owner and blogger and desperately need to skills to grow my brand, blog, and business. I would consider it an experience of a lifetime.

    Sarah Hwang says:

    This giveaway is so exciting to me in so many ways: I have a friend who attended blogspot and have raved about it since, I have a small photography business, and I’d love to work on my photography blog and improve it on all levels. I’d love for an opportunity to take this class online!! Thank you!

    Katherine says:

    This is an absolute generous giveaway that will last forever. I would be so thrilled to win this giveaway because I would love to learn faster and more efficient skills in photoshop. I have my own small blog, and would like to learn different techniques in approaching things in graphic design. I really love all the details and little tricks you guys use and would love to learn them. Bri and everyone at Designlovefest is such an inspiration, thank you for offering such great giveaways.

    Rachel Wise says:

    I’m just your plain jane college student aspiring to do my dream job- start up my own photography business! I’m already starting to get things in order so when I graduate I hopefully be a full time photographer & support myself! This would just be another step in the right direction to allow me to learn multiple tools necessary in doing so – beacause I still have a LOT to learn! Thank you for the opportunity!!! 🙂

    Christen says:

    Oh man, I’ve wanted nothing more than to be able to learn photoshop, but it’s always been just out of reach! It would so significantly help my abilities in my job with The Broke-Ass Bride, but would also help me in my own personal journey on Blonde at the Beach.

    KJ says:

    I would absolutely love a spot in the online blogshop class! I have so many ideas for creative side projects that would be so much easier to bring to life if I knew photoshop! Everything from making my own greeting cards to designing websites. I’d love to empower myself with new skills.

    Lindsey says:

    I’d love the opportunity to take your class because I have so many ideas in my head for how I want my blog to look and posts I’d like to do, but they don’t get done because I don’t know how to use Photoshop efficiently. I would eventually like to turn my blog into a real life brick and mortar business, but I can’t do that without better skills. Thanks for offering this giveaway!

    maggie says:

    My sister and I blog and I really want to take it to the next level in terms of design and layout. I know the basics of photoshop, but not much beyond that. I feel like I have a lot of ideas and just need some help streamlining them, and I think a solid design and blog manifesto will do just that. Oooh, fingers crossed for this one! What an absolutely fabulous prize.

    Megan says:

    What would I use my new skills for? TO TAKE OVER THE WOLRD, OF COURSE! But, seriously, I would feel like I could! I just started a blog back in January and as of yesterday I am a first-time owner of a DSLR camera! I am dying to start amping up my skills for the blog so learning Photoshop would be a such a DREAM!

    Tara says:

    Hi, I’ve just taken a massive leap, a few actually, and decided to go out on my own, and start a new website based business. There have been some rather large expenses going out, and not too much coming in during this early stage. I do intend on doing Blogshop one day (online as I live in Europe), I just need to get my finances on track. I think Blogshop would be an amazing investment to my business and website, being able to have more creative control over my images and the during the initial design phase would be priceless (I have a fabulous web designer, but it’s never quite the same as when you do it yourself, I’m a bit of a control freak when in comes to aesthetics). I would love this opportunity to partake in Blogshop and thank you for the giveaway. Fingers crossed!

    danielle says:

    oooh, oooh! pick me! I’m just in the beginning stages of starting my blog and would love to get this puppy up and going. right now my husband is my everything-adobe teacher and he’s not always the most patient…

    Brianna says:

    I am 25 years old and have been a teacher since I graduated from college. I have realized this is not the career path I want to follow and am trying to build skills that will enable me to pursue a career that would be more personally fulfilling. I know the very basics of photoshop and am looking to strengthen my resume.

    Alejandra says:

    HI! I am designer but I have not worked as it, for long time and I never did it as a graphic designer actually, so I feel I have lost the practice and skills. Mostly I dedicated myself to decoration and windows display set design. I have been travelling for a while and I realize how useful would be for me work as a online freelancer. I need to refresh my knowledge and learn what is trendy now. I am chilean so I am sure I can have a different background here. I love all what you do so would be awesome have the chance to add your infuences to my expertise. Thanks a lot in advance!

    Chelsea says:

    You were my number one inspiration all through college. I have wanted to take a blogshop for probably as long as they have been around but just never been able to afford to! I moved to NYC a year ago and on the side am trying to start up my freelance design business / blog. I work during the day and then do my business / blog through the night. I would SO love to be able to take everything and anything I can learn from blogshop and apply it to what I’m doing! I am so determined and know blogshop is the tool I need to get to the next step of my dream! Thanks for being such an inspiration to so many young designers!

    Janel A says:

    I would LOVE a chance to win a spot in Blogshop online! I’ve been following you and blogshop for quite some time now and really admire all your work. I am a freelance graphic designer + I run my own floral biz online – needless to say this requires A LOT of social media marketing! I’ve currently started blogging and would love the help learning how to transform my blog into something amazing!
    P L E A S E P I C K M E ! <3

    Jim Towson says:

    I blog for our photography company and would love to learn some new skillz!

    Hilary says:

    Oh, I’m so excited!!! I would love to attend Blogshop from home! Having a puppy, a busy work schedule, and a husband who also works all the time makes travel difficult. I would love to learn some Photoshop skills to help me improve the graphics on my website. More specifically, I’d like to amp up my logo and create a really gorgeous handwritten business card for my blog. A ticket to Blogshop would be a HUGE help, I’m sure!!

    Brittany says:

    I would be thrilled with the chance to strengthen my Photoshop skills. I used to know a lot, but it has all slipped away due to my job lacking a need for it. I hope to start my own blog one day, but Photoshop has intimidated me!

    Thanks for the opportunity,
    Brittany

    I had a big change of heart in December and quit my secure job because I felt trapped in a field that I was told was ‘creative’ but actually lacked any of that freedom at all. Since then I have started building my own job trying to hone my own point of view and passion. One of my big goals in the next year is to launch my own website, blog, and community platform where freelance creatives come together for support. I know blogshop would be a huge learning experience for me that would boost me up! A good friend of mine took your class in New York and keeps telling me that your little shortcuts and tools will help take me to the next level. I would love the chance to learn from you both! Best, Maggie

    Sara C says:

    I would love to learn skills to apply to jazzin’ up my personal blog as well as using the skills to do promotions and graphics for my husband’s small business. I already play in Photoshop a little and would like to continue learning how to get the most out of the tool!

    Becky says:

    If I won this opportunity, I would use these skills to take my Photoshop skills to the next level. I am an in-house Corporate designer in the dental industry and you can only get so excited and so creative with dental supplies. I blog in my spare time and would love to use some new skills, tips, and tricks to be able to hone in on my creativity. Thanks Bri for this great giveaway!

    B.

    I have had my blog running for awhile now and while it has gained readership its starting to look very stale. I would love to learn the tricks of the trade and freshen up on my Graphic Skills and revamp my blog and start working on my small business event planning site. I have a small business and we are also gaining momentum and adding a fresh flair from the techniques I will learn would be amazing. I work as a Graphic Designer for apparel for my full time job and translating what I know from apparel to the web doesnt always translate. I would just love to freshen up my skillz!

    Meghan says:

    I work full time but I run an Etsy shop in my spare time. Right now I rely on my husband to help me edit all my photos, banners, and other graphics for my shop. Though he is so willing to help … I would love to be self sufficient and able to run the shop on my own! I used photoshop in college but it’s been so long, I’m rather rusty. All of your posts are so inspiring… I’d love to attend blog shop.

    -Meghan

    Karie says:

    I’ve been dying to attend Blogshop! I want to upgrade my PS skills for a better website.

    Vikki says:

    If I could take a blogshop course, I think I would finally have the confidence to start a blog I’ve been dreaming about. Thanks for the giveaway.

    Jenna Jordan says:

    AHHHHH! This is so exciting, me heart just jumped! I have been wanting to attend for sooooo incredibly long, but have never had the room in my finances! I would use the skills learned at Blogshop to further my photoshop abilities for my new fashion and lifestyle blog. I am creating the blog to inspire girls in there twenties to be bold ,fierce, and adventurous while still enjoying the girly pretty things in life that we love! (hence the name, pretty+fierce!!) if I won I feel like it would really inspire me and give me a confidence boost that is much needed!! Eeeeeeeeep!

    Xoxo

    Sydney says:

    I am about to set up a new Etsy shop/business and would love to add a blog into the mix! Though, I am terrified of blogging–I think Blogshop would be an awesome way to overcome my fears!

    Carissa shapiro says:

    I would just dieeeee if I won a free class. I’ve been wanting to go ever since you announced them and when you came to Nashville to host one it just wasn’t in my budget. I have blogged in the past and am currently setting plans to start a new home-based business and blog to go with it. The skills I’d learn in blogshop would just totally put me on the path I need to be. It would be SO encouraging. Like seriously, this would be incredible.

    Esther says:

    I’d use my newly acquired Blogshop skills for my upcoming website (online guide + directory) to natural skincare and clean beauty, spruce up marketing & PR materials and create pretty posts! Being able to start this small business is a dream come true for me! (:

    Ali Henrie says:

    I recently started a textile design shop and would love to learn new skills to be able to expand my line to include more designs.

    Becca says:

    I’m a freelance photographer specializing in weddings and portraits and since I’m starting to book my OWN weddings this year, I’m in need of a new blog to help promote my work and share wedding portfolios with couples, friends and of course potential clients! I would use the skills learned in Blogshop to work on my design skills and make my blog extra eye-catching (and pretty!)

    I am really trying to get my blog off of the ground and have such high hopes for it! I could truly use all the inside advice and help that I can get! I want to make my blogging aspirations come true and I can do that with a class like yours! xoxo

    I’m a blogger and prop styling intern with basic Photoshop skills that need some sharpening up! I’m also trying to start my own freelance career in marketing, communications and styling. I would love an opportunity to learn from you ladies and to be able to make a living doing what I enjoy (and pay off some gnarly school debt)! Thanks 🙂

    Lindsey says:

    I’d love to do blogshop to improve photos for my blog, but also because I’m interested in being a photographer (A girl can dream!) and thought this would be a great place to start.

    Oh how amazing is this? As a one woman show I run a small jewelry design shop and business. This class would help me better my skills and allow me to better my shop and blog. I have been eyeing up BlogShop classes for a while. I so hope I get this chance!

    Kris says:

    I’m taking a big next step in my life and leaving behind a desk job to start my own business. Being able to use Photoshop would help me set up my own website and also give me a much better look for social media. I “upcycle” vintage items and sell them on Etsy as well as document my home cooking addiction, both of which could really benefit from better photo editing. Right now I can pretty much only play with the contrast or use Instagram.

    You’re story is so inspiring, I would love to not only learn some photo editing skills from you, but would also love to hear your take on approaching this crazy online world.

    Jessica says:

    I am a newly licensed architect, now starting my own firm, so I’d love to have the help of BlogShop to kickstartall of my marketing and web presence endeavors! A friend recently took your in person class and LOVED it. Now I want to learn all the secrets too!!

    Emily S says:

    I have had my eye on Blogshop for a bit now, and am itching to learn more about Photoshop and blogging. As a senior at college receiving a Media Studies degree in May, it would be great to get a kickstart and refresh some of my skills. As I intend on owning my own business in the future, learning some tips of trade will be super fun!

    shelby says:

    I’ve been dying to learn photoshop. I currently have a blog but my skills are not so good. I would love to be given the opportunity to learn so that I can express my creativity through my blog.

    Kelly Ann says:

    I know the very very basics of photoshop and would love the opportunity to learn and expand my knowledge and creativity through Blogshop.

    Rhea says:

    If I am selected, I would use my blogshop skills in creating a magnetic site for my business, a collective of women gathering together for creative workshops and authentic conversation and connection. I want to be able to edit photos and create beautifully designed posts to inspire women, to bring them back into alignment with their power, nature and other women. To participate in the March session of blogshop would be perfect timing as I have just started the process of putting together the website. Fingers crossed!

    Joanna says:

    Would love to get inspired and refresh my photoshop skills. I am planning on starting a new blog in the coming months on being a mommy and keeping stylish in our lives 🙂

    holly says:

    I would love to win this ! I have been desperately wanting to participate in one of your online blogshop classes (i am from New Zealand) but since having a baby last year, my boyfriend & I have decided to live a year without spending money. I have a personal blog & I also mantain a blog for where I work, but I can’t say I’m doing a very good job! I really want to learn the ins and outs of blogging, how to be faster & create more unique content. Please pick me ! xx

    Chloe says:

    I’m a school counselor, and I’ve been wanting to start a blog for students for years! A blog would help me reach way more students than I can meet with in a day, and can give them access to a wealth of information if they would only read it. I think Blogshop would teach me how to create a visually appealing blog that students will WANT to read.

    Maureen says:

    I need to learn how to edit photos in photoshop for my blog! I really really REALLY hope I win!

    Kitty Cotten says:

    I’m entering this giveaway for my little sister! (I’ve already taken blogshop and it was awesome!) My little sister is graduating this spring with a degree in Nutrition and just started her own blog! (http://liveeatrepeat.com) She’s an adorable and witty writer and understands how to make nutrition entertaining and practical. The only thing she keeps telling me is she wishes she knew how to use Photoshop to edit her photos. I’ve taught her a few basics to get her blog rolling, but I know she could take her blog to an outstanding level after taking blogshop! So, please pick my little sister Kimberly for this giveaway!

    Angelica Birch says:

    About 2 months ago I resigned from my 9 to 5 in order to pursue my daydream full-time. I’m in love with desgin + bringing people together, and currently freelancing + working on launching a lifestyle brand/media group. Photoshop skills would help make me a more valuable freelancer and give my brand the SOMETHING it needs to get off the ground.

    I have the spirit of an entrepreneur and an insatiable desire to build on my natural talents! Winning a spot in the blogshop class would be a beautiful blessing and a huge step in making my dreams a reality. xo

    What would I do with the skills obtained from attending a Blogshop session? Great question! First things first, I’d shout at the top of my lungs that “I am Blogshop certified!!!” I’d do so for the world to hear. After all, isn’t word of mouth the best kind of publicity? I’d then take a look at my site with my freshly sharpened eyes. I’d use what I learned from the blogshop session and apply my own spin to it. I like to think I have a great eye to paint a pretty picture; I just lack the certain skillset necessary to do so. I’m not just a blogger, I’m a reader too. Although a person’s content is my main reason for revisiting their site, I understand that it’s also a great visual presence that makes it much easier for me to return. My main goal is to provide a great experience for my readers. One that includes great content and even greater presentation. With the knowledge the ladies over at blogshop are extending, I can definitely see myself doing just that.

    Nicole says:

    Bey there, I’m almost 30, Austrian and still working on pushing my blogging/ online career. Basically my dream to work for myself. I’m full of ideas and skills and passion and love for beautiful things but my two hands just never manage to bring those things on screen. I feel this blogshop class could really help me finally finishing what I started.

    Chandra says:

    READ ME! READ ME! READ ME!!! (Did that help?)

    Well if you’re reading it…hallelujah! Welp, I’m comment 286. Yes, number two hundred & eighty six. My chances are slim to none, but I MUST give this a shot! And I’m praying to the heavens that I win this…well, because I’m convinced I need this more than anyone else. Lol I have QUIT my corporate-world job & pursued my love for photography full time. I know that blogging is a huge stepping stone when it comes to a small self-made business…and yet, I know the slightest bit about it…but I need to learn. QUICKLY. I’m in somewhat of a panic over it. Drama queen? Perhaps. But I know the rare basics, and this lady needs to kick it up a notch. So, please…if you happen to read this, just know that this passionate dream-chaser would greatly appreciate the free spot! And if I don’t get it, well, I’m sh*t out of luck because I can’t afford the class right this moment…but will be back to pay for it the second I have the cash-ola! I’m like a sponge and need this class!!!! Thank you for the opportunity to win this! Keeping my fingers tightly crossed!

    Brianna S. says:

    I’d love to win this! Blogshop has always looked so lovely and fascinating. Learning how to blog better could only help me in a lot of my endeavors. 🙂

    Renee says:

    I would LOVE to attend your online class to learn how to photoshop! I will be putting my skills to good use on my blog. I’ve been following your site for a long time and would love to attend an in person class when you have one in my area but until then the online class would be a fantastic way to start!! 🙂

    Austin says:

    I’m a magazine editor who’s on the brink of starting a blog about all the things I would write about in my day job if it were up to me. I’ve been tinkering around with photoshop on my own, but I still have a long way to go. Taking Blogshop would be huge in terms of getting my blog off the ground. Please help!

    Isadora says:

    I have been toying around with the idea of starting a blog, but haven’t quite found the motivation to get it started! I think this will give me a push in that direction!

    Sheila says:

    Oh my! Where do I begin? I am a freelance print graphic designer / small business owner specializing in helping other small business owners elevate their brands to the next level. I am eager to fully dive into Photoshop to be able to offer cool graphics for social media channels, as well as gain skills to offer UX/UI / Web Design / wireframes as part of my freelance service. Currently I have a 4 year old and both time and money are not on my side these days to take a class at a community college. Also, I am a huge Bri fan and love the work she’s done with Zoe for Minted. I want to learn how to do that – tech me, show me – Cheers!

    Elizabeth Hernandez says:

    If I’d be lucky enough to win a spot on blogshop, it could make me a more marketable person. I’ve been feeling stuck in my current job and I’m working on landing a new gig within a marketing team. But most of these jobs require strong working Photoshop knowledge. I only currently have very introductory photoshop skills. Because of my limited skills, I dont feel too confident. I’ve been wanting to try out blogshop but currently the cost is too high for me, even the $300. I love the content you and your team create and I’d be so happy to get a chance to learn from the best. Thank you for providing this opportunity to 5 lucky people (hopefully I get in, fingers crossed).

    laura jean says:

    I have a blog that I would love to totally renovate, as I have relied heavily on the graphics provided by the blog site itself, which is great but limiting. Additionally, I have photoshop but I am so slow with it that it really limits my productivity and imagination when I am creating print items for a ministry that I volunteer with. A blogshop event would be awesome and really helpful!

    meridith says:

    i would loooove to win and use my new skills in my essential oils business and to improve my blog and find more readers!

    Nali P says:

    I would love to attain some new skills to use on my blog and potential business. Thank you for such a great opportunity!

    Tara says:

    I am a small business owner and an overall dreamer and it has been a goal for a long time to attend blogshop. I want to learn, grown, be inspired and have a blast! This seems like the perfect way to do all of those and then some.

    KC says:

    I work for a small beautiful home furnishing and interior design company. Recently, the company has asked me to run their blog. It’s such an exciting opportunity and I have so many ideas for the blog but really need some Photoshop guidance on how to execute those ideas. A class like Blogshop would be a great spring board and a push in the right direction.

    Jordan S. says:

    I have a blog of my own, but it could really use some work aesthetically. I would LOVE the opportunity to get help from blogshop. I’m a film & media student, wanting to take things to the next level with my online presence and professionalism. This would be a fabulous step in that direction!

    I am working on building my own Etsy shop (in addition to running my blog), and would love to be able to apply the skills I’d learn in Blogshop to my work on my shop. I dream of eventually working for myself full-time, and I need a strong foundational skill set in order to do that.

    This is an amazing giveaway! I am a small business owner & a british blogger! I would love to learn how to improve my blog but also get good use out of photoshop within my small business! I have ALWAYS wanted to do blogshop (but money!) and this is a perfect opportunity to get that chance!this brit wants it! what a terrific giveaway. thanks for the chance to win a spot!

    Emma says:

    I have tried to make a blog a few times, and each time I have been unsuccessful. I finally realized they were not working out because I didn’t have a clear vision of why I wanted to make one. So I went back to the drawing board (no pun intended) 🙂 and started to do what I really love which is designing. My dream is to be able to share and sell my designs online. This class would help me create a platform to do that. Also I love learning new things and I know that all the tips and tricks you will teach will be invaluable!!

    Lana Lepper says:

    I would love to learn photoshop, specific to blogging to help improve my blog, improve my instagram, facebook, and twitter interaction and to grow my pinterest following. I am desperate to learn the skills I need to be the master of my business! Improved photoshop skills will help me design for my blog, design for my website, design for print (yes!!) and of course, design for social media.

    Please!

    Hai Fang See says:

    Hi I am from Singapore ! I am a mom who blogs and it’s been a while that I learned something new, esp since I became a mom ! You are too far from where I am and the only way for me to learn is through your online course. I am already dreaming of better looking photos and better looking blog… so plsss help make my dreams come true ! THANK YOU !

    Diana says:

    I would love to take the blogshop class online to learn how to do better spreads for my french butter collection. It would be a great asset to learn & hopefully teach others in the future.

    Britney says:

    I’m pretty sure blogshop would be super fun! And I wish I could do it in person (but I live in NZ). I’m a blogger looking to expand my blog into a business and right now the whole branding part is rather terrifying haha so I would use this expand my own skill base 🙂

    Jamie says:

    I’ve always wanted to do a blogshop, I attempted a lifestyle blog before, so being the perfectionist that I am, I need all the know how before I can start over!

    megan says:

    it would be so amazing to win this!
    i currently manage the web presence of a small women’s clothing boutique and would love to be able to bring more of our visions to life by learning all that blogshop has to offer! i love deslginlovefest’s aesthetic and would be so excited to start to fine tune my own!
    🙂

    Rebecca says:

    Oh my gosh! I am obsessed with blogshop, and I really want a chance to be a part of it! Every time it’s been hosted in my home cities, I’ve been in the wrong one! (Stockholm and Denver). I’m an about-to-graduate student and just started my own blog, dying to learn everything I can. I’m in love with digital design and am looking to get a career in it! And it doesn’t hurt that my birthday’s March 12th!

    Jessica Avery says:

    This year I am turning 30 and rather than dreading it I have decided that this is the time in my life to take risks, live out dreams and discover what my true passion is. I have been so blessed with a wonderful family, husband and friends but I have always felt something has been missing…my voice! I have been afraid to speak my mind, share my thoughts and my loves with the world. Now is the time! I have taken a big step by purchasing my first “grown up” camera as my 30th birthday present to myself and I am ready to use it to share my love of vintage treasures, family recipes, books and more with my friends and the world through my blog. It is a new start and I am ready to take a leap of faith and land among the stars! Thank you so much for this opportunity and your consideration!

    Jennifer Sanchez says:

    This would be HUGE for me! I am a floral designer and stylist currently building a site for my portfolio. These skills would be immensely valuable to me!!!!

    Jennifer Sanchez says:

    Whoopsy! There is my email ^^

    Phoebe says:

    oh my! What an opportunity. I have been longing for the confidence and know how to start my own blog. The blogshop experience could be the start of a super creative journey for me. Instead of just following the events religiously on your blog, I would love to be part of the action! Thank you for your constant inspiration.

    Daniela says:

    I really enjoy art and design and would appreciate the opportunity to refine my photoshop skills!

    Stephanie! says:

    ✭ ❤ ✭ My blog focuses on literary lifestyle and meaning-making, and even though my content centers around the written word, I love the visual punch of great photos interacting with the text. When I started blogging, I thought I’d quickly be using only my own images, but I’m still relying on others’ images (credited and fair use, of course!) more than I’d like. I’d love to get to the point where all of my content, including my images, is my own. I’m also super-curious about ekphrasis (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ekphrasis) and am concocting a text/image-based project that would make great use of improved Photoshop skills! ✭ ❤ ✭

    Anita says:

    I’m a young freelance theatre designer, and I’m working on a website + blog to showcase my talents appropriately. Right now, I simply have an online portfolio, but I think Blogshop could take my web presence to the next level!

    Nicole says:

    Hello!

    This opportunity literally has me grinning from ear to ear. After having my second son last year, I decided not to go back to work and devote myself to my family. While I am so grateful that I was able to take this extra time to spend with my boys, I miss the creativity, camaraderie and inspiration that came along with my past career as an event planner in the fashion industry. I’ve always dreamed of starting my own business. I am finally taking the plunge and will be launching my own event consultancy business later this year. I would love to complement the website I am currently working on for my business with a blog involving all aspects of entertaining. Winning this opportunity would mean the world to me! Thank you for your consideration!

    Helen says:

    inspiration to blog more!

    Jeanne says:

    I would LOVE to be part of blogshop because I just set up my very first two websites, a portfolio and a blog, and would like some inspiration as to what to post and how to make my content appealing and beautiful. Having my own website is a dream I’ve had for almost 10 years – since I was 13 – and I would like to make this as successful as I have imagined and this class will be an invaluable tool to reach that dream. Thank you all so much for this amazing opportunity and for being educators for the blogging community.

    Nicole says:

    I’ve recently been growing my teeny business with a new website and blog design and would LOVE to have the ability to create infographics and content (like the AMAZING in person or at home graphic on the Blogshop site). I really feel that knowing photoshop can take branding to the next level and this is the perfect time for me to do that! Not to mention, I have so many amazing ideas for how to help my clients and readers, but I can’t get them onto the screen without these skills!

    Alicia says:

    I have a blog and would love to be better on photoshop but also getting ready to open a shop and would love to make my own materials.

    Olivia says:

    I’m a advertising major who is so dissatisfied with the curriculum of the communication department at my university. I thought it would be more deign oriented and I am now a senior and am afraid to take the step to change my major. I would love the opportunity to experience one of your workshops; it may lead my heart in the right direction. I have always had a passion for design and have looked up to you for quite some time. Please continue to create FOREVER!

    I am a photographer and have recently decided to make my blog about not just photography, but graphic design and style as well! I would love the opportunity to learn everything Blogshop has to offer. I can’t wait to learn more about Photoshop! Thank you for your consideration 🙂

    Kate says:

    I need major help with my blog craft photos so this class would be perfect for me!

    Erin says:

    I’ve always wanted to learn Photoshop. Now I’m taking the steps to start my own crafty business and feel the need to know all that I can learn about Photoshop to get things off the ground!

    Kendra says:

    I would LOVE… L O V E to win a spot in this giveaway! I am a photographer and blogger wannabe. I think attending this class would be just the confidence boost I need to enter the blogging world. I so admire what you girls do! You inspire me to do more.

    I would use these new skills to start my blogging career. I would design my site just as I want it to be. I would love to learn how to add my own handwriting to my site. I had been considering taking a class at a community college, but after seeing what you do, I know I could attain even more than what I want for my business through your class.

    Thank you, thank you! My fingers are crossed!

    Andreea says:

    I have a blog on social and foodie tips in Brussels, Belgium, and would love love love to make it look smarter and more ”professional’ 🙂

    Hi! My name is Erika and I would love to be apart of Blogshop! I am really passionate about blogging and would love to learn from the professionals. I make art and am a momma and found my way to blogging to promote my artwork and the journey of being a first time mother. I know I would get a ton out of this class and would improve my blog by a million precent. Alright fingers crossed and magic dust. 🙂

    Bee says:

    What a great giveaway! I would love to win a spot in your next online blogshop class. I’m looking to learn more about Photoshop and how to use it for my, currently sad looking and empty, blog. It would be great to learn how to use Photoshop for website/blog design and blog posts layout. Thanks, Bri!

    Joanna says:

    I would love the opportunity to attend an online blogshop class! I’m a graphic designer and have been itching to not only enhance my portfolio, but create a beautiful blog. I’m young and itching to learn everything I can. I’m still in ‘the gap’ – where I have great taste, but can’t quite get my work up to my own personal standards. Blogshop would help me fill that gap!

    Morgan says:

    I would apply the skills learned from blogshop toward my self-guided graphic design education. I’ve been working at becoming a graphic designer for awhile after discovering a passion and a hint-of-a-knack for it. A fantastic, kick-in-the-pants Photoshop class would be the perfect motivation and education to carry me through to the next step in my professional life. I can’t afford to go back to school right now, so a class like this would be a huge gift from the graphic design gods.

    Holly B says:

    Ooh, so exciting! I’m a blogger, and I’d love to improve my Photoshop skills. I KNOW there are things I’m doing that have to have easier solutions, and also so many more design related projects I’d tackle if I knew how!

    Maria says:

    Hey! I’m a visual arts student who has a blog and who loves design work. I’d so enjoy a spot in the workshop! Thanks!

    jenna says:

    I would love to win a spot for the online class. I work in advertising as a Digital Producer and need to learn more photoshop skills. I also would love to start my own blog!

    Ana says:

    I would absolutely love to be a part if Blogshop! I’m currently a Masters of Architecture student and know Photoshop for needs based on design school but would love to pursue my passion of photography. I think this class would provide me with a great foundation to begin this journey of photography and blogging! I think it would be the spring board I need to push me towards this! Thanks for doing this!! Good luck everyone with the contest! 🙂

    Sarah says:

    I’d use Blogshop to design a logo and add some graphic character to my new editing and copywriting website. I’d also use it in my job as studio manager for the amazing photo collective that I work for. Yeah!

    Molly says:

    This would be so awesome! I started my design and writing freelance business a few months ago, and though I know quite a bit in Photoshop, I know there are shortcuts and other things to still learn. 🙂

    Ariana says:

    I attended blogshop as an intern but I really want to focus on my own photography and blog in order to support myself. I need blogshop to redefine my blog and to perfect my own work. I will use blogshop to be inspired and to fine tune what it is that I want to do- get my work out there and have a successful blog!

    Vicky R says:

    I work for a non- Profit doing social media and I am trying to advance my Photoshop skills (I am self taught) as I run our social media accounts. I also have a blog and would LOVE to get to share in this class!

    Karin says:

    Hi, I would like to win the class because I want to be better at Photoshop. I’m a soon-to-be-design-student-graduate but I’ve never really been taught Photoshop, and only know the bits and pieces I’ve managed to snap up. It’s affecting the work I put out(and you know, employability), and so I really really (REALLY!) want to get better, and this would be so AMAZING to win! *fingers crossed* Thanks!

    Jess says:

    I am a blogger who wants to expand my blogging skills and this would be the perfect way to do so!!! I like in OK and am a student so being able to afford/get to a blogshop is difficult.

    This would honestly be a dream. As a college student, I can’t afford actual blogshop, but I’ve always dreamed of attending blogshop! The online option is a great idea, and I would love to win!

    I’m currently going to school for advertising and marketing, and I graduate in April. I have a strong interest in blogging, social media, and digital marketing, so I would most definitely put my new found skills from the online blogshop to help me in those areas! Most specifically, I would like to use the skills I learn to create stunning layouts and learn how to incorporate perfect images with colour! It would give me the perfect edge when applying for my first “adult” job in April!

    I would also learn the skills to help with my own blog, too!

    Helga Theodors says:

    I will be opening a design store in L.A. later this summer with some great friends and would love to be able to find a nice look and feel for the retail photography and presentation both for a blog and the online store that we will have as well. I have been working with my husband who is a photographer for years and always had to rely on his abilities, now I would like to learn to do it all myself. Always be a student – right?!

    Lauren says:

    I am the Marketing Manager for my company and I manage all of our events, social media/websites,etc. Unfortunately, I do not have any experience with PhotoShop, so I have to ask our Arts Dept. for all graphics and photo edits. Gaining experience in PhotoShop from your class would be a TREMENDOUS help, not only to me, but for the overall productivity of my company. We are also looking to attach a blog to our main website, so if I were able to learn tips and tricks from the experts, I could bring those skills back to work with me and begin this new project with confidence! Please, please, please, pick me! I will fly to any location you are hosting a class at. Thank you for the opportunity!

    Alivia says:

    I am a self-taught designer and have invested my own time in learning mostly Illustrator. When I do use Photoshop I find myself fumbling around and taking more time than I would like. I love designing but need the professional help to take my career to the next level. I would love this class to help me with my shop and creative design studio I just launched. I love Blogshop’s emphasis on what bloggers and creatives would use Photoshop for and know that the information will be invaluable. Thank you for the opportunity!

    Carli says:

    I’m a small business owner expanding my online presence and starting a blog with zero knowledge of photoshop!Would love the opportunity to hit the ground running with some serious skills!

    Hi,
    I am a small business owner trying to master photoshop. I have had photoshop. My online shop can really use some new home pages images that I would like to create myself. Learning photoshop is on my things to do for the year of 2014. I know this class will be just what I need to take my images and collages to the next level.

    Anouk says:

    I have been dreaming for a blogshop class for so long ! I have just started my own business 6 months ago and it is working pretty well in France but I often find myself stuck with all the photoshop and graphic design tasks because I don’t know a lot of it. I love designlovefest and I follow you closely, you actually inspired me to create my business because I wanted to create nice things and events just like you do. Your work makes me want to be better at what I do. It is really inspiring. I am only on facebook right now and I would like to open a website for my business and seriously need some real basics to create nice pictures, layouts etc. Thanks so much for this opportunity !

    Love

    Anouk

    Maddy says:

    I would LOVE to learn Blogshop to make my blog posts look more professional/streamlined, and to use on marketing materials for my Etsy shop. Two in one! 🙂

    Claire Erickson says:

    I would use the skills from blogshop to help make my up and coming design website and blog appealing and fun to my clients and followers. I think learning these skills would help me get the creative ideas in my head out there for everyone to see! 🙂

    sam says:

    cool! i am a musician, and I am trying to build a more compelling, visually attractive web presence across all social media platforms- i love design, color and I totally understand the power of drawing people in with great looking visuals…however, my lack of Photoshop skills is blocking my ability to get my really cool branding ideas out of my head, and into my web presence. love what you do bri! thx : )

    Jeanne says:

    Hello! I have been sharing what I am grateful for over the past 1400 days straight. I love sharing with my family and friends and know I would love (and need) your training to take it to the next level. I am a big fan of yours on instagram and the web. Thanks for the consideration!

    kaitlyn says:

    I would absolutely LOVE to win & be a part of Blogshop online! As a new blogger, I would use the class to hone my Photoshop skills. The only training I have now is trial & error and the ability to google! Thanks for the amazing giveaway!! Your blog is an daily inspiration.

    Whitney says:

    I work in the the creative department and am really looking forward to learning fine-tuned skills to use on the company blog and marketing sites.

    Karen says:

    Andrea says:

    I would LOVE to attend Blogshop. I have a blog, but I haven’t been bogging because I don’t like the design/layout of my site. I also have a start-up event planning/styling business and I think knowing PS would be extremely helpful. And I have a couple of Etsy shops, and I would love to be able to create banners/ads etc. What a great giveaway! *Fingers crossed!*

    Liz says:

    I’m a fashion and lifestyle blogger and would love give my site a more professional and stylized look. I’ve never used Photoshop and feel limited with the photo editing programs I do use. Plus, I’d love to learn some basic graphic design skills and know this class would definitely inspire me! Great giveaway!

    zoë says:

    I’d love to add a little extra knowledge to my design arsenal. I’m working on my website so every little bit helps!

    Samara says:

    I’d love to take Blogshop to help the arts organization I work for grow. Our goal is to engage younger audiences and I think developing design skills would help reach this demographic.

    Heather says:

    I’d like to resurrect an old blog that I found I couldn’t keep up with while working. I definitely need the creative outlet and I’m hoping your class would show me some time-saving techniques on the photos and layouts!

    stephanie says:

    I would love to have the opportunity to win on of the spots for the online workshop!…I’m a Character designer, illustrator and animation artist, and I would love to use my new blogshop skills to be able to showcase my art in a more professional cool and creative way!!!…

    In the last few months I am building my own small business in interior styling and as a blogger, next to my part time office job. My website is still under construction, but as soon as it is online, I want to put my own styling pictures on it together with my blog posts, which are currently on my Facebook page. I am really in need of Photoshop skills to make more progress in building my dream to be a stylist and blogger…. I think Designlovefest is really inspiring and since I live in the Netherlands, I would love to follow blogshop online! Hope you will give me this chance 🙂 Thanks!

    Style Tutor says:

    First, I would definitely use the new skills to up the game on my blog. Secondly, as a high school Yearbook teacher, I would use the new skills to better help my students execute their ideas and up the level of creativity on their layouts.

    Hannah says:

    I’m a painter. I run an Etsy shop and a blog. I’m currently nearing the completion of a 365-day project where I paint or draw something everyday. Once I’m done with the project I plan on starting a DIY blog to share what this year-long art project has taught me about design, technique, and creativity with the world. I would love to take Blogshop so I can learn how to incorporate my hand-painted graphics and designs with images for my blog. Thank you for being such an inspiration!

    Kadie B. says:

    Hello! I am a freelance graphic designer in Calgary, AB – Canada. Winning the blogshop *international* online workshop would be phenom! To be a great designer you need constantly be learning new techniques. I am always inspired by designlovefest so being able to take a blogshop workshop, powered by those brilliant minds, would be a invaluable experience that I would not take for granted. xx

    At the start of this year, my brother and I decided to open a business together. We offer web development and online marketing services for small and local businesses. I have always been so inspired by you Bri, and I would be so honored to have the opportunity for you to teach me some more insight on ways I can improve my own business and help my clients out too. Crossing my fingers and thanks for this awesome contest (it’s great for us little businesses just starting-up!)

    I would use what I’d learn in this class to make my blog more beautiful & my posts stand out more. Thanks for the giveaway…crossing my fingers! 🙂

    Danielle Cip says:

    I would love an online spot so I can take my blogging, or lack there of on my small business site up a few notches. I started a wedding planning business and blog play a HUGE roll in sharing ideas and concepts with future brides. It would help a great deal. <3 Thanks for the opportunity to enter to win!

    Jessica says:

    I would love to attend the online blogshop because I want to become indispensable at my internship! I’m also interested in starting a blog but have been too scared because I don’t want to have ugly graphics.

    Caroline says:

    Thanks for such a wonderful opportunity! I am a photographer, and I would love to know how to spice up my brand with unique graphic design, animated gifs, and other Photoshop basics (type, borders, shortcuts etc.) I’ve missed along the way in order to make my images pop on my blog… again, thank you!

    I am starting a business venture and currently plan charity events that would GREATLY benefit from this creative element. It’s the only element missing in my skill set to express creatively through design what I do and connect with customers and attendees. Visual value is immense. This would be an amazing opportunity that would go to VERY GOOD USE! Thanks for this opportunity. 🙂

    Shannon says:

    Even after using Photoshop for many years, I am still definitely half-assing my way through things and I would love to sharpen my skills with Blogshop! I am a freelance graphic designer who is dreaming of starting my own online store so it would be amazing to win a spot in the online class!

    I am a small business owner who desperately needs to learn Photoshop. My business has been open for two years, but my blog has been sad and empty that whole time. I am reaching that tipping point in my business and need the extra edge that I think this class would give me. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE following you on Instagram and Facebook.

    Thank you!

    Eos says:

    I blog to spread love and inspiration and I would use my new skills to help carry my artwork into the world, and be more structured in what I do.
    I would love to have the skills to navigate in photoshop with more certainty and save time to do more art and love!

    Kesha says:

    I feel technogy is leaving me behind. I have a blog but am intimidated by it because when I read others including Design Lovefest, I feel totally out of my league. I know I need to learn photoshop but it’s more than that. I need to really get my thoughts out of my head and on to my screen and then put them into the world. I think you ladies may be the only ones that can help me do that. I am a visual learner, I like to be hands on and am now embarking on a career that really focuses on “pretty” I ‘d like to know I could keep up.

    marianne says:

    Ohhh!!! We could really use some blogshop in our lives! We’ve got to up our game on graphics for emails, product pages, front page AND our blog.

    Thanks for the chance to win! 🙂

    Hi DLF! I would love to take the blogshop class online because I’ve just started a lifestyle blog with my best friend, Shannon! Shannon’s taken the course, but I haven’t, and I’d love to take a greater dive into the world of graphic design and all that wonderful jazz. Good luck to everyone and thank so much for posting this excellent Giveaway, Bri!! Happy Tuesday!

    jenn says:

    I want to use the skills for my new business as well as to update and make my personal blog look better… and who couldn’t use more help with photoshop?!?! there is SO much to learn!

    diann says:

    I just recently acquired photoshop, and while it is handy for resizing instagram photos for easy printing, I would love to know more about what it can do! i am hoping launch a blog and a small shop selling vintage/vintage-like items (garage sales and antique markets are a passion of mine) of my own and feel that good, solid photos are key to success.

    Gabija says:

    I love what you guys are doing but have been an observer for toooo long I want to experience blogshop even though it’s streaming! Hope to see you soon:>

    Petra says:

    I would use my new skills to suck up to my boss, obviously!! I work for a graphic designer/ photographer. She runs a fairly new company that I was lucky enough to land a job at as a stylist/ office manager. Little does she know I’ve been building my design portfolio to one day show her in hopes of taking on more creative projects. The blogshop would help to refine my skills and give me the confidence I need to show her what I’m capable of. Help support a starving artist!

    Tracey says:

    I would love to take the blogshop class! I have been wanting to start a blog for some time now & feel this class could help me finesse & share my voice. Thanks!

    I would love the opportunity to learn everything you know! I am a blogger and am hungry to learn as much as I can to document the little things that I love.

    i am a ceramic artist who USED to blog, and i’m more than antsy to get back into it. finding the time to learn these skills to continually produce blog content that inspires others has been the hardest part. an online version of this class would help me make it happen! as great as the in person classes would be, this one would fit my schedule perfectly!

    Natalie Britton says:

    Oh, winning this would be such a godsend for me! I am currently teaching in rural Alaska and have blogged since junior high. I love writing, art, and photography and have always dreamed of turning my passions into a full-time job.

    I’m finally making the move to pursue blogging this summer. I’ll be moving to California to develop my blog whole-heartedly. However, I lack the foundational skills to really kick-start my blog and turn my vision into a reality.

    Winning a ticket to Blogshop would be such a help to me, both career-wise and financially. I would be able to dive into the creation of my blog while here in rural Alaska and possess the competence to really take off once in California.

    Thank you so much for this incredible opportunity!

    Barbara says:

    I have a blog and plan to start a small business in the next year so learning more about Photoshop would be so great!

    ashley w says:

    oh oh! pick me! pick me!
    i’m a graphic designer … who has luckily has been blessed with all sorts of awesome opportunities, despite that fact that i [shamefully] started off designing in microsoft word [because i couldn’t afford photoshop.] i’ve never actually been “professionally trained” in photoshop- i’ve just figured it out all on my own along the way, so i’d love the opportunity to see what i’m missing out on. i’m sure i’m doing most stuff backwards!

    Brianne says:

    Yay!!
    I just graduated in December with a BA in Computer Graphic Design and I’m really struggling to find a job. I am tired of companies dictating whether or not I will make a living and I’ve decided to explore the option of freelancing and blogging to create my own living instead! I know I have potential and I am SO eager to learn and improve. I would use this skills to polish up my blog and decide how to best use it.
    Although I have a degree, I don’t feel like I have the skills to really call myself a designer. I know this class would help me to gain the confidence I need to take on my own freelancing business.
    It would also be amazing to learn Photoshop for real in a more hands-on, practical way since the class I took was VERY much a step by step, project-specific tutorial and I ended up having to teach myself Photoshop, which sucked and has made everything more difficult.

    Lucie says:

    I’m a web developer, so I focus mostly on code. Would love the opportunity to learn more about design and improve my photoshop/illustrator skills so that I can both design and develop great websites!

    Missy Rutland says:

    My 14-year-old daughter and I would like to start a blog together called Meade & Mommy. Showing both sides of being females and how each age sees life. We would like to learn from start to finish how to run our blogs.

    Erin says:

    First of all, I have surpassed into full blown girl crush mode with you and angela!
    So if I can’t learn from you in person, the interwebs will join us.
    I missed out on the sydney class to see you guys in action but you’ve provide so much inspiration for aspiring bloggers and creatives that I feel like, what COULDN’T I do with my new skills?!
    º Build an empire? (You guys have that covered)
    º Eat Icecream for dinner?
    º Take what I learn so I can pass it on to others that are looking for that one thing that will kickstart them into their creative path (destiny!)?
    Ok that sounds great, all of the above! Please & Thank you

    Rachel says:

    I would love to take this course! I am a blogger and work in marketing and am currently getting into design, so I feel like this would be perfect for me and I have heard amazing things.

    Thanks for the chance – I heart your blog and Instagram!

    Mindy N says:

    I’d love to attend a blog shop. I think I can really benefit on enhancing my photoshop skills to build my blog and really get some good content to grow my following around food and fashion. I’d love to add this skillset to expand my creativity. Please pick me! 🙂

    Lindsay says:

    This is so fun! My name is Lindsay and as a graduate in Civil & Environmental Engineering who now works as an Editorial Director for a Men’s Lifestyle Magazine, everything i’ve learned about Photoshop has been self taught. Being that I live in Montreal, Canada, I’ve always wanted to attend a Blogshop but haven’t yet had the opportunity. I would love to take this online class to improve my skills and mostly just to get a chance to finally be part of the whole blogshop creative! Thanks!

    Gabriella says:

    I have always been drawn to design projects…and have been putting off small personal projects (like finishing my website) or sitting back in conversations at work because I lack the skills to really jump in. blogshop is the step I have been waiting for to really empower me with the knowledge to get things moving, but also arm me with skills are so valuable to my career now and in the future. I am such a fan of the blogshop aesthetic and mission, and would be so grateful for the opportunity!

    Brianne sheppard says:

    I’m working on starting up a photography business in my town that focuses on film look, and stylized photos! There will be a blog component and this class would’ve invaluable! Thanks! Xxbri

    Callan says:

    I work for a small art museum in Athens, Georgia. Because our staff is small and our budget is limited, we do not have a designer on staff, and I constantly find myself crafting promotional materials and designing fliers. I have an art background but ZERO skills with photoshop, which makes this design work tough and very time-consuming. A chance to stream Blogshop online would be a total game-changer. I could both make myself more valuable as an employee and create more interesting, effective online and print promotional materials for the great programming the museum offers in the community. Fingers crossed!

    melissa says:

    i work for a small private company and they are eager to start a blog, so this would be a HUGE help for my career!

    Krizia says:

    Hi girls, I just began my small business 6 months ago and I would really like to learn some skills and tips to grow both my freelance photography and my design businesses. I juggle a full time job, freelance photography, and my small business at the moment. I think your class can be real beneficial to me when I decide to leave my daytime and pursue my business and my freelance photography full time.

    thanks so much

    Liz says:

    i work for a company that publish news on interior design and products and have been put in charge of our blog. while i love writing and find it comes naturally, editing pictures and also making the blog stand out is a little trickier. i’d love the skills to make it look amazing and also to help the other members on my team – also i just absolutely love learning!

    Kelly says:

    I have been working on a blog for years. I realized I do not have the proper graphic skills to take it to the next level. This blog will help the community connect with one another and I would love to give it a professional look to get interest!

    may says:

    I am design challenged! My hubby has an business since 1965 but we don’t have an online website. Would love to learn some elements to create photoshop banners or images for wordpress site. Thank you for this opportunity, love to follow your work and readers comments as well. Cheers! xo

    Leah says:

    Hi BLOGSHOP! I would love to learn amazing kickass Photoshop skills because a)it’s really interesting/fun/awesome b)I have a website, LA Brunchers, and photos of brunch and our events and the website as a whole would be a heck of a ton better with improved skills c)I love cats. And you know that I’m a good person if I love food, cats and design!

    Since I live on the other side of the world… BLOGSHOP ONLINE and Marie Forleo’s B-school are a killer combination to put my newly packed interior and lifestyle design business on line. Because I know… I have to learn from the BEST. Bri, love your work!!!

    Hillary says:

    I would love to learn how to make my photos brighter and prettier like the pics I see on designlovefest. I know a bit of Photoshop but my pics continue to disappoint me and I could use some help. I have a blog and a semi-functioning Etsy site. My blog, my Etsy page (and me!) need a dose of inspiration that I know a blogshop will give. Thanks for the opportunity!

    Tinessa says:

    As an event planner at the second largest university in the US, remaining innovative is crucial. There’s no creative tool or skill that you turn away from in the event industry. Learning Photoshop would be an added bonus for my boss and my clients!

    Tonya says:

    Hi, I ‘m in the process of starting my blog and need serious help with techniques to grow my blog! I have done a lot of research but I am still missing some great techniques.I am so close and I know your knowledge will take my blog to the next level!
    Best,
    Tonya

    EMILY says:

    I live on a small island off the west coast of Canada, and going to a blogshop class in a city would be rather hard for me, so doing this online blogshop class would be FANTASTIC! I love taking photos. I used to take them with my Nikon EM 35 mm camera and develop my photos in a dark room. I’ve since got into using a Nikon D3000, which is great, but I would love to learn some photo editing through photoshop. I loved developing my own film because I got to play around with exposure and cutting and adding clips from other pictures, so I would love to learn all that on photoshop. Plus, I just started a little clothing and jewellery business (I design and create everything myself) so having these skills would be super beneficial! xo, em

    Elizabeth Brouillette says:

    I’m a stay at home mom who is wanting to start my own wedding/event planning business. I would love to learn some Photoshop skills from Blogshop to help me create a unique brand for myself! <3

    Jaqi G. says:

    Hi. I would really love a chance to attend your blogshop online! I know photoshop and I created a blog. It definitely needs improvements. I would really love to know how to create blog post more efficiently. Thanks!

    Caroline Casey says:

    I recently started my own lifestyle blog, and am starting at ground zero in terms of Photoshop capabilities – teach me your ways, blogshop! Additionally, my company is launching a new website in May for which I’m leading brand strategy, and it would be incredibly helpful to have some design knowledge to inform our creative and content decisions. Thanks for the fantastic opportunity – good luck to all!

    Cristina says:

    This is my dream! I am a photographer but have never had any formal photoshop training. I just started a new blog http://www.bloghomage.com and this would be the perfect class to help me vamp up my content!

    I am so excited about this giveaway! I’ve been blogging and running my freelance food photography, styling and event biz for several years now, along with the help of my husband. He is the techie one and I rely on him for a lot of help with the website and photography editing. As my biz has grown he has to balance his day job with my requests. I would love the opportunity to learn more tech skills so I don’t have to rely so much on him. This would be a huge benefit for our biz and our marriage! 🙂

    Kate Walsh says:

    I’m in the beauty industry with a fleet of top professionals in the beauty industry (including the stylist responsible for Jared Letos perfect locks) I’m trying to start a blog with questions and tips from beauty professionals in all the major cities with little to no photoshop skills/blog skills/computer skills in general my grand idea is falling at by wayside. Please help!

    …I’ll get you perfect hair, skin and makeup.

    Oh to attend a class is on the top of my list of 50×50 this year! I would use everything I learn to make a better blog post!

    Fingers crossed!

    Amulya says:

    I would looove to develop some graphic design skills! This would be perfect.

    Anonymous says:

    I want to start a budget home decor blog and I am at a loss as to how to start. I love the look of your blog and Emily Henderson’s. Both are sleek, informative and “bright.” I have photoshop and have just scratched the surface of the surface. Fingers crossed!

    Lacqueerisa says:

    I fall into the middle category, a blogger and am looking forward to create a more tasteful blog layout and images for my readers. Thank you so much for this giveaway and opportunity 🙂

    Eeeee! This would be so amazing for my business! We just launched our blog in January and although we know how to take amazing photos- cue photo booth fun pics- would love to be more comfortable with Photoshop for the blog & social media!

    Pick me please 🙂

    I’d use my blogshop skills to improve and create more engaging content for SavorGood.com, my blog that I started last fall! I have wanted to take the online blogshop since I first found out about it. It would be amazing to win, especially as I recently moved to San Diego from LA. Thanks so much for offering this giveaway!

    Ana Flávia says:

    I really need to improve my skills for my business!! I1ll launch my blog in a month and it would be amazing to take blogshop classes online!!

    Jenn P says:

    I have been daydreaming about starting a blog for nearly two years. It would be wonderful to learn how to do things the right way from the beginning.

    April Vang says:

    I would LOVE to have the opportunity to be a part of Blogshop. As an aspiring blogger I’d love to give my blog some pizzazz and add short videos to the mix. Learning photoshop would be amazing!

    wenlin says:

    I’ve owned a travel and lifestyle blog since about two years ago and despite my love for graphics and design, am very lacking in knowledge of any photoshopping skills. Think the skills I pick up during blog shop series of workshops could do wonders to improve the aesthetics of my blog!

    Sara says:

    I would love to take the blogshop class! My brother is a graphic designer and EVERY TIME I need something done in photoshop I have to text/call/badger him until he reluctantly agrees to do it. I would like to be more independent and do these things myself! I’d also like to start my own business this year and it would be such a blessing to have these skills. Thanks for hosting such a neat-o giveaway 😀

    PAMELA says:

    Ooo! Ooo! I would love to win this! I have 22,000 Pinterest followers and my daughters keep telling me to start a blog but I am so intimidated by all the amazing blogs out there. I haven’t blogged in years and it’s a whole different game out there. I would love to get some Blogshop guidance and help I’m starting my own blog. I want to empower women my age (in their 40s) to embrace this season of life. Any help I can get in that endeavor is HUGE!
    Thanks for the opportunity!
    Xoxo – Pam

    La says:

    Absolutely love blog shop. You are so talented and your blog is always a joy to read. I’d love to get better acquainted with Photoshop for my blog and online shop!
    Come to Glasgow, Scotland! We would love you over here :)xx

    Lauren C says:

    I recently graduated college and have my first official big girl job at an advertising agency. I would love to take blogshop to get my creative juices flowing and have the skills to create beautiful graphics for our clients. I do a lot of blogging and social media so these skills would be super handy.. and of course I would love to use them for my own personal brand!

    Laura says:

    I started a blog about a year ago and the photos are by far the weakest part. I’m really trying to use only photos I’ve taken myself, but it is hard to make them look pretty when I have zero Photoshop skills. And I find myself being crazy jealous of (and also so happy for) digital friends who are taking/have taken your class.

    Chris says:

    I’m a medial social worker that helps families with medically fragile children. I also have a blog that helps other social workers pass their difficult licensing exam. I’d love to learn about photoshop in order to help others. Thanks for doing what you do! You’re such an inspiration!

    Hannah says:

    I moved to Japan to adventure, explore and teach English to the sweetest kids ever. I have a lot of downtime in my new town and have started a blog to keep family members in the loop. I’m a bit of a shutterbug and I love to write. Blogshop would be a fantastic lesson in photoshop and really streamline and expand my knowledge for my blog. I love to learn and I figure why not do so from the best.

    Thanks for the opportunity, so glad its open internationally!

    Barbara Swanson says:

    I would love to win a spot at your blogshop classes. My family and I recently started a blog about one of our passions!! Clothes and styling. We have all the creativity and ideas in the world, however, those ideas mean nothing unless they are translated well for our viewers. We want to learn how to improve our blog and also conquer photoshop. Blogshop will also help us to use our current skills to the fullest potential while teaching us new skills to make our blog more successful. We are excited about blogshop and all want to attend but that is not possible. Please help us improve the blog that we put so much time, energy, and love in!! We will greatly appreciate the opportunity!

    Lauren says:

    What a great giveaway! I’d use Blogshop for my own personal website/portfolio and at my job in marketing!

    I just recently opened a small bridal boutique in my hometown. This has been my dream since I was a little girl, and I am so excited that I finally have the opportunity to bring new, fresh designers to our town. Before opening my shop, there were only two options for bridal gowns in town and both seemed to be catering to one girl with crowns and bling. While there is nothing wrong with that girl’s like myself were left to wonder what other options there were out there having to travel hundreds of miles to find out. I would love to take the Blogshop course to start a bridal blog for my shop and help brides in our area find that perfect gown.

    Elise says:

    As a wedding planner staying fresh but true to your overall brand can be a constant struggle. Especially in an industry where passing fads and trends seem like a revolving door. Every event has it’s own design style based on client’s visions and overall goals. Our challenge is having our “signature” conveyed through each event cohesively and in tune to our branding. We want to take the extra step to rise above in a noticeable fashion through social media to identify ourselves from the ordinary “pop-up” planner. We’ve recently been following and closely observing how Design Love Fest makes it’s magic. We also want prospective clients to identify with “us” and not just great branding. We want our clients to feel like they know us, our design aesthetic, our vision and business ethics. And I must say, you do this very well. Although I’ve never met you, I feel like your my “sistah’ from another mothah” 🙂

    bex wright says:

    This course would mean so much more than a comment can say. With a blog, a small business on the way, and a lot of business-related dreams, this gal would dive into the work of Blogshop, and do so with extreme excitement.

    The small business sector of the course would be what I MOST look forward to, but to be able to improve my Photoshop skills is a very close second.

    Thanks for this opportunity, girls.

    Love xx

    Lisa Bradley says:

    I work for an architecture firm, and Photoshop is an invaluable asset to have for interviews, presentations, and renderings. I would love the opportunity to learn your tips and tricks!

    Missy Rutland says:

    Thought I had posted…… But it’s not showing up.
    My 14-year-old daughter and I want to do a blog called, ” Meade and Mommy” we would blog about how each other feels in the same situation. She wants to show how a 14 year old feels vs a mommy and why.
    This is a new chapter for both of us!

    Chris McCarthy says:

    I’m looking to launch a blog, but have very little tech skills and I think the blogshop would be invaluable in my process to create. I emailed Bri asking for recommendations prior to realizing that you do online classes! Pick me!

    Carey Jacquinot says:

    I am currently in college studying elementary education and am so torn on whether to switch back into Graphic Design. I was really turned away by my lack of knowledge in graphic arts. I would love this opportunity to help give me confidence to follow my dreams and passions to apply for the Graphic Design program. With this class I would use my new knowledge on my educational blog, for my future in graphic design and for my soon to be small business. Given this opportunity would help me align my dreams with realities.

    All Love <3

    Mallory S. says:

    I’m a lover of all things design, new-ish blogger and I work with brands & asset delivery on a daily basis for my job. Would love the opportunity to learn vital skills that could apply to all areas of my work, both personally and professionally but finances have prevented me from taking your class previously.

    I would like to learn to edit photos better for my blog and work faster.

    Alice C. says:

    I’ve been thinking about starting a blog, I think the workshop would be a great incentive to finally do it!

    Hi! First off, yay you guys are awesome for doing this! I’m a recent graduate and am eager to learn about photoshop. It would help during my job hunt in this tech savvy world and I would use it constantly for fun! I’ve been blogging for fun and because I love writing for years now …and my blog is pretty lame looking. I wish I could afford the class and I would take it in a heart-beat. More than skills, I have never really been a creative person and this class would truly inspire me. I’m always reading your blog and absolutely love it! Thanks again!
    Xoxo,
    Lizzie

    I would use blogshop to obtain a nice grasp of Photoshop skills and be able to push out aesthetically pleasing work like yours! 😀

    Naomi Dudas says:

    Hello! I’m Naomi Dudas and I am, you guessed it, a blogger. But I’m a young blogger…still in high school and trying to work hard towards my passions. My blog is where I let go and let inspiration take control. I would love to attend your class and learn how to enhance my blog. I’m thinking of a career in design as well so i would really appreciate learning your skills to use not only on my blog. Thank you for this opportunity!

    Primarily- get better at using Photoshop. I use it, but definitely do not use it to it’s full potential! I would LOVE to learn new editing skills for photos and also graphics tips too. I would use the knowledge to continue the growth of my photography and make a new photography website!

    Madeline says:

    I’ve very recently become a certified health coach. I have a little website for my business. It works and has the information I need but it is lacking my personality. Blogshop online would be so awesome because I would finally be able to learn how to create the image I want to present to the world. At the moment I just use simple templates provided by weebly but it would be amazing to be able to make those my own with the added knowledge from Blogshop.

    Ashley says:

    Due to some serious health issues I’ve been faced with, I’ve had to re-evaluate what is important in my life, and how I see myself living it.
    I want to work from home, and for myself. I have what I believe to be an amazing passion project I want to launch. I’m so excited about it, but I certainly need to build a skill set that will enable me to create and post beautiful things online as that will be where the bulk of my new business takes place.
    Fatigue is something I really struggle with, therefore learning how to do things efficiently is vital to me.
    Thanks for so generously giving away 5 spots!

    Fran says:

    This is amazing. I feel like I am brimming with ideas but lack the skills to execute them, and it has limited me in some of the ways I’d like to pursue my goals. Photoshop can seem so daunting, and I’ve had my heart set on Blogshop for a long time and haven’t been able to afford it (though I know it’s worth every penny). My husband and I are going to have our first bebe in two months and I’d love to be able to learn and do more work from home to contribute to our income!

    Mallory Chason says:

    Hi!! So yes I am totally and utterly new and out of the loop when it comes to being hip with a “go to” blog. I obsess and love blogs but haven’t really given into my own because truth be told I am of a creative mindset and I care what people will think of my blog. BUT I refuse to start a blog unless I really know how to do one. So whose suffering? Honestly…my poor boys. I am dying to start a blog that is “Chason the life…our life” and be able to cherish sweet moments with my growing family. Currently husband and two boys (18 months and 2 months). Please help me!!! I would love and really cherish this class because it would help document our lives!! Love Mallory

    Katie says:

    This sounds like such a great class. I’d use it to learn photoshop (I’m a newbie!) for my personal food blog and the blog I manage at work (an international nonprofit). At work especially, it would be great to not have to go through our design department, which requires getting in their queue weeks ahead of time, and to take our blog up a notch to be more relevant to younger audiences.

    Chelsea says:

    I am in the final stages of launching an event design company and would love to attend Blogshop online for some great tips and tricks to help my business appeal to consumers and ultimately succeed!

    I’m a blogger and want to up my blogger game to design great posts that are visually intriguing.

    Kaitlin says:

    Hello! I would love to win this giveaway because I would like to make my blog posts as beautiful and professional as possible. My blog focuses on life as a young working mother, and I know that having attractive posts is key to having a truly successful blog. The more readers I’m able to get, the more mothers I can hopefully inspire and comfort! After all, it takes a village :). Thanks for this opportunity!

    Sandy says:

    My new year’s resolution this year was to start up my blog again. For the past few years, it’s been a passion of mine to curate thins I like found on the internet but I’d like to start curating things in my own life that fill me with the same joy–namely memories and personal anecdotes. To accomplish this, I would like to give my old blog a new face lift to accompany the personal changes in my blog. “The new adventures of old Sandy” can only happen if my photo shop skills continue to grow.

    Thank you so much for the amazing and generous opportunity to learn new photo shop skills!

    koseli says:

    I’m 27, mom of two in Brooklyn, NY! I have so many big ideas for a Brooklyn Mom blog but I don’t have the computer skills to up the ante and make it beautiful. This class would help me so much to get back a little bit of me while I’m fully devoting my time to my kids. I would love to learn!

    Anastasia says:

    I’d use my new skills to give my blog a more cohesive brand! I’ve got a header which I’m fond of, but really want to take this to the next level by making all images within posts in line with my overall style. My biggest focus would then be moving into my own images a bit more 🙂 I’ve got some theoretical design know-how, but not the skills to back it up!

    Laura says:

    I am a new-ish blogger. I have a self-hosted wordpress site that I love to fiddle with and design on my own. I have no Photoshop experience or skills except what I’ve taught myself, piecemeal, from various tutorials and websites, and from just experimenting. I think I’ve been able to do some pretty neat stuff, but as I try to grow my blog I want to have a really solid photoshop foundation so that I can present blog and my brand as professionally as possible. But the main reason is that I enjoy photoshop. I love editing my own photos, and working on designs, layouts and backgrounds for my blog and also my various social media accounts. Even if I reached a point where I could afford to hire these things out, I probably wouldn’t. And finally, I want to have the skills and expertise to turn my blog into a lovely, inviting space with sweet little details that really draws readers in and makes them want to stay and connect (because isn’t that what blogging is about?)

    Emma Radke says:

    If I won a spot in Blogshop I would l i t e r a l l y jump over the moon! I am a senior at the University of Minnesota Twin Cities in the graphic design program. No one in the program teaches us anything about any of the Adobe creative suite programs, we all have to teach ourselves. So, the skills I would get out of Blogshop would definitely give me an edge as a student, soon-to-be graduate, and freelancer.

    I also have an Etsy shop, named The Throwback Daze, where I make large scale macrame home wares (hammock chairs, swings, shelves, wallhangings, etc). Blogshop skills would definitely be a huge help there, because right now I’m basically just using Instagram photos for my listing pictures.

    Actually, my dad was going to get me a spot in the very first online Blogshop but just as he was about to purchase it sold out. So if I did win, it would really make his day too!

    Stormie says:

    AHHH blogshop, how I’ve coveted you for years! I would use my blogshop skills to improve my blog http://20somethingdiaries.com, and start designing logos/ graphics for my new small business! How amazing it would be to get this chance, I’ve wanted to do blogshop for years 🙂

    Rebecca says:

    Blogshop would help my blog look more professional by creating unique substance. I have basic 101 photoshop skills but I want to learn from teachers that are using it in creative ways, not in a generic form. I also would like to learn from someone that has a successful blog. Having a class like this will help me learn how to make my blog be visually stimulating for my readers.

    Mark Lesaca says:

    Hi! I’m Mark from the Philippines. I have always dreamt that I can attend your blogshop course, you see, I’m new to blogging and I wanted to learn a lot about Photoshop and hoping to get a lot of tips from you. I have so much creativity on my mind but I can’t execute them, it’s frustrating because I can’t show my creative side. This lessons you will be teaching can definitively help me personally and my upcoming blog.

    My name is Ashley, and I am a blogger and photographer located in Fayetteville, Arkansas. I would LOVE to attend one of your superfab online Blogshops! I have a personal blog, and I also blog for a premiere wedding and event venue called The Barn at Twin Oaks Ranch. It is super important to me to do all that I can do to help them market their amazing barn location as well as swank up my own little photography blog. My goal is to create a strong brand mixed with a little fun to keep my readers coming back. Telling stories is my specialty, now I just gotta learn to “Blogshop” them up. I am an avid Bri Emery social media stalker (Pinterest, Instagram, etc), and I would love to learn from the best! I am also a brand new wife and momma, so I pinch a penny whenever possible.. Pick Me! (Pretty Please with a cherry on top?)

    I use to be a product developer in the fashion industry but decided to turn it all around and start my own small brand in throw pillows/tea towels. I have designed the first throw pillows and the production is going to be finished this month and next month the webshop (with a blog) will go live. Product photography will also be done by me, I have some knowledge about Photoshop but I would love to lear your tips and tricks. I work in a cute concept store in Amsterdam but this pays nothing. It would be really great if I could win this.

    Simona Kljun says:

    I live in Australia and it is really exciting that your blogshop has now gone international. Your classes look like they have so much to offer and I would love to participate.

    I have a small business and have also recently created a blog on WordPress (not public yet). I have material to gather and need to learn more about the world of blogging. I’m almost ready to launch – would love that boost of knowledge and experience to help me make it happen.

    Thank you.

    ashley says:

    I offer a number of different services, from event design to hand lettering and I would love to be able to learn how to create a blog/website where I can creatively display my work, convey my aesthetic to future clients, and inspire myself (I don’t know about you but I have some of my best ideas while learning something new or doing anything creative, really!). Fingers and toes crossed!

    Anna says:

    I have very rusty design and photoshop skills and would LOVE to take the blogshop course to gain confidence with photo editing and creating moodboards. It would be great to be able to give my blog a little makeover and get advice and tips from someone who’s design aesthetic I admire. I also really love scrapbooking and I think being able to know photoshop better would help give me the courage to try a digital scrapbook!

    Brina says:

    I would LOVE to attend your online Blogshop! I recently started a blog and and trying to work on my photography skills in general! I am trying to figure out what I would like to do with my career and just know it needs to be something creative!!

    Marie-Eve L. says:

    This contest is a dream come true. I have been following Blogshop since the very beginning and I remember dreaming of attending a course in L.A. or S.F. but Montreal, Canada is kinda far… Now that online blogshop is here I have been saving to attend one of your class, but it would be great to win it 🙂 This course will be of many uses for a blog I have in mind and am working in on with two other friends as well as for a small business I work in. But mostly just because I love you girls, you are so amazing !

    Margaret says:

    I am in the process of setting up a new blog/website. I need to make it look pretty and professional!! 😉 It’s been something I’ve worked on for a few years now and can’t seem to get it right. Thanks~

    Grace says:

    Would love to win one of the spots because I have been wanting to start a blog for a while now. This would really motivate me and push me to get it started and hopefully begin a new creative phase in my life.

    Sarah says:

    I run The Design Center’s blog and would love to reformat and add more personal touches to our site! Fingers crossed!

    I’d love to work on my moodboards!

    Francine says:

    I’m already a Photoshop user, but I’d love to learn new tricks and get the chance to spend sometime with you guys -all the way from Japan!

    kerry says:

    the more photoshop knowledge, the better!

    Charmaine says:

    I have been aching to develop photoshop skills! I have a day job but my passions are photography and writing and I would love to use what I learn in Blogshop to start a blog and have an outlet for creativity! I want to make beautiful things! <3

    Destiny says:

    I would use my newly acquired skills to delve deeper into my passion and really figure out where I want my life’s journey to go. Blogshop has been something I’ve wanted to do for awhile and have never had the means to do it, so this would be a true blessing to me!

    chelsea says:

    I would use my blogshop skills to improve my graphic design portfolio. I am transitioning my career into graphic design and would love to work on a blog or a magazine. It’s really hard transitioning your career when there’s already so many talented people out there I need every skill I have! I’m so excited to beef up my photoshop and become a pro! Thank you! xx

    Hi!
    I am from New Zealand and living in Melbourne, Australia. I am in the very early stages of starting up my own studio based florist business and my blog is the a very big part of that! I have had my blog over a year and have big ideas and grand plans but zero skills on the computer!

    Doing this class would be amazing for me and for what I want to achieve. I would of course love to go in person but as a struggling florist, not an option!

    Please pick me for a spot! I will make you proud.

    Thanks!! X

    mary says:

    I would loveeee to take blogshop! Although I have the gist of photoshop, there is so much more to learn! I make cute little custom portraits in my etsy shop, but my goal is to create a blog to showcase my work and grow my little business. You’re class could help me a lot! Fingers crossed!

    stacy says:

    i’m a novice blogger looking to make my blog posts look better + create graphics for my blog faster! thanks bri, what a fabulous giveaway as i still am not in a spot where i can quite invest in the class, even online 🙂

    Rachel says:

    So I’ve had Photoshop for about a year now and can still barely do the basics. All of the YouTube tutorials in the world don’t ever seem to help. I started to learn for a wedding blog that I wrote for, and now I know it could be really useful for the small boutique that wants me to take care of her blog and social media marketing. There’s also just the fact that now that I have it I want it use it to its potential, eve it’s just to print cooler photos for my home.

    Crossing fingers, wishing on stars and blowing dandelions….

    Keli says:

    How incredible would it be to win! I have a food blog that I’m trying to revive with a more professional vibe. I want to break into freelance writing and would like to use my blog as portfolio/resume. I’m somewhat techie but could really benefit from a Blogshop course! What a dream it would be!

    Adrienne W. says:

    I would love to take this class! I’ve wanted to start a blog for a long time now, and this would give me the confidence I need to finally do it!

    I would LOVE the chance to learn some tips from professionals. I am a small shop owner online – both Etsy and Ebay, and I’m interested in the world of blogging. I have a great concept that I would love to turn into a reality, but I’m afraid to do anything because I lack the skills to make it “professional”. Thanks for the chance!!

    Cecilia says:

    I would love to win a free spot to the blogshop online class! I hold down a boring office job and I want to better my photoshop skills so that I have another feather in my hat. Ideally I’d like to combine photoshop with my painting and photography skills to create my own business, also use blogging as a way to express myself….this would be ideal!!

    Emily says:

    There are so many reasons why I want to win the spot to the blogshop online class! I think the biggest one is because I am starting a blog for the distillery my family is starting up, and I would love to learn good skills on how to put the blog together and use photo shop. All the techniques would also come in handy for the church group blog I run!

    Megan Meek says:

    Winning this would change my life in so many ways! I blog and run social media for several clients (photographers, interior designers, etc…) and the skills I would gain from BlogShop would help make me a bigger asset to my clients! I also design custom invitations and announcements and BlogShop would give me new, fun skills to produce better products. Just the possibility of being able to attend BlogShop gives me butterflies! BlogShop would help streamline my process and teach me skills to make me a faster, more efficient blogger and photoshopper 🙂 Yippee!!

    Kara says:

    Thanks for the chance to make my blog posts prettier!!

    Courtney Vance says:

    I would use the blog shop class to help my husband with his new photography business blog and for my current bosses blog!

    First of all, thanks for this amazing giveaway, i dream about taking one of your blogshop !
    I’m a food blogger and i would love to upgrade my blog posts & make them more attractive. And i’d like to better know how to use photoshop when i retouch pictures. So pleaaaaaase pick me 😉 Thanks !

    This is so exciting! I’ve been dreaming of taking one of your Blogshop courses for a while now. I’ve been blogging for two years and have taught myself how to use some of Photoshop. There is still a lot for me to learn. This year, I really want to grow my blog and I know that your Blogshop course would be incredibly helpful.
    Cheers! Allison

    Nanette says:

    I would love to use this to really amp up my blogging skills. Also genuinely like the networking aspect and meeting all my fellow bloggers!

    I’m a student in interior design as well as a blogger for my lifestyle blog that I launched last year. I have always wanted to attend your Blog Shop courses but have not had the chance to as yet. I would love the opportunity to be able to learn and improve my photoshop skills and think that the training you would provide would be very useful in improving my skills with editing photos and allowing me to get really creative with my blog as well as with designs for future clients.

    Christina says:

    Hi there! I have been following your blog for a few years now, and I am consistently inspired to nourish my own creativity through an online forum. As an educator (I teach high school English), I am always underwhelmed at the lack of blogs out there that offer a truly modern, sleek design while also providing useful teaching ideas. Over the past year, I have begun to cultivate a dream of building an education blog that is both a visually appealing format and an informational treasure box for other educators. If I were to win a spot in your course, it would instantly propel the trajectory of this dream, allowing me to begin creating an inviting, creative space for ELA teachers to, hopefully, update the classroom to further engage students while utilizing current design trends and modern aesthetics.

    karen says:

    I started a blog a year ago but I just haven’t done much with it. I need help with everything!

    Joanna says:

    Would love to learn how to make my blog look better! Better photoshop and editing skills and to make myself more marketable, the more skills the better!

    Anna S. says:

    I currently have my own blog (Here: flawlesslyflawed.com) and recently bought a DSLR, so I am really looking to amp up my photos and photoshop skills. I also do marketing for various local businesses (in Greensboro, NC) and would love to offer them a better look (from my end). As a student (Fashion Student at UNCG) I am currently not able to pay for a blogshop class and winning would be the ultimate opportunity!

    Thanks!
    Anna

    alissa says:

    I would love to win a spot in the online Blogshop! I’m in charge of communications at my work, which because of a small staff and budget means I’m creating a lot of content myself. Blogshop would definitely help make my job easier!

    victoria e says:

    i would love to win a spot in the online workshop! i recently started my own digital media company and i could really benefit from your team’s expertise. i also want to learn photoshop but just haven’t been able to successfully navigate it myself. i would love to make it out to an actual class, but alas, i am in ohio which means there is a perpetual mound of snow covering my city until may. fingers crossed i win!

    i would really love to use this tool, i am a blogger and studying marketing and i do the marketing for my church. I would love to learn tips and trips for the blogging world, that would make my content look better, and i want to gain knowledge and editing skills in the blogosphere would deff be helpful! i I would really improve my over all blogging performance if i learned tips & tricks!

    Kate says:

    The second I saw your post on Instagram I rushed over to the blog to sign up for this amaaaazing opportunity! My friend and I recently graduated from college and are currently slumming it with our 9-5 jobs, which we realize we never, ever meant to do. We were made to CREATE! We love finding old treasures and making them new again, we love making new things that make life easier, and prettier, of course. And most importantly we love sharing what we learn from all of our projects with our friends. This opportunity would help us share our inspiration and ideas with confidence and in a much more creative and professional fashion. This possibility is so exciting and would help us get the ball rolling to becoming the bloggers we want to be!

    Winning this opportunity to attend your class would be life changing, really. Story time, I recently graduated from college and I’m trying to work in communications/ social media managing. Having an Anthropology degree I have a lot to prove because I come from an unconventional background. Most job postings recommend sending in a writing sample or the URL of your blog. I tried to start blogging but I became so so frustrated because the aesthetic that I envisioned was not translating on my blog. I stopped blogging and I promised myself I’ll start once more when I save up enough money to buy a good quality camera.

    I have a friend that attended your workshop in New York and she swears about the magic you guys do to help people and I’ve been salivating for the chance to learn from you!!

    Fast forward, I got an internship to handle a local dance studio’s online presence and we literally have no budget for anything. If I excell at this position and use the tools I learn from you to pave a brand for myself, it could open so many doors for me!

    I will do the wishing dance tonight and pray I’m lucky to win this life changing opportunity 🙂

    Laurie says:

    I was just talking to my friend who took your online blogshop and loved it! I’ve been dreaming of taking it but can’t afford to right now. I’m just starting my career in the event planning industry and would love to add some graphic design skills to my repertoire!

    Lauren says:

    This is such a great opportunity! I would love to learn how to make my photographs look more interesting. I’m just starting out in photography and working every chance I get to practice, in hopes that some day it could be my full time job. Photoshop kind of scares me, but I want to learn and this would be an dream come true!

    laurie says:

    Hello from frigid Maine! I was a graphic designer back in the days of cut and paste before becoming a full-time mum. Although I kept my toe in the design waters with some self taught skills as the world changed, I totally need a good dunking. Now that my daughter is a teenager (and I became a single mom) I need to be considering not only how to support myself in this new world on my own but also want to dive right back into that big old design pool too. Old school to way cool – take me there! We don’t get a lot of design oriented stuff up our way and I don’t have the opportunity to get away to do it, so this will really help me so much as I rebuild my life and work. (Btw- what you’ve done in your career is really impressive, Bri. I’m probably old enough to be your mum and if I were, I’d be super proud.)

    Jennifer Barr says:

    Pick me! Pick me! Pick me! 🙂 A graphic designer who LOVES blogs but doesn’t have the courage (and knowledge) to start her own! I’ve always wanted to take a BlogShop class but missed you when you came to Toronto, Canada and you haven’t been back since.

    This online tool will give me the kick in the butt that I need!

    Vicki says:

    The classes look like so much fun, and as I live in Asia these online classes are perfect! A designer by day and a online vintage shop owner on the side this would be the perfect *gift* to allow my business to grow in style. Have my fingers crossed. <3

    Debbie Smith says:

    I would love to learn more about how I can use my blog more effectively for my photography biz

    Dom says:

    My husband and I started a blog about a year ago and it’s been a really fun project for us. I do the writing and research and he makes it look awesome. I’d love to learn how to use photoshop to be able to put together some posts on my own so we can split our time and be able to post more days a week!I know with the skills I’d learn in blogshop I’d be more confident in my ability to create and keep up our blog that we are both pretty passionate about. This is such a cool giveaway!

    Reema says:

    Gosh, there are so many things but I think first and foremost, I would love to use my new skills to better brand myself. I feel like I don’t have a very cohesive feel to my business/blog yet so I think I could really benefit from a few lessons from you guys :).

    Kristine says:

    I would LOVE to win this contest!! I would love to create quick fonts and turn around editing fonts on photos in a snap! These are going to be 5 LUCKY winners for sure:)

    Ariana says:

    I own a small etsy store and would use it to help improve my blog and design layout. This would be a dream come true and I pray to have the opportunity to learn more with your help! Good luck to everyone!!

    Jaclyn Petes says:

    I am dying to take the online BlogShop!! I’m an interior design consultant from Canada and have always wanted to learn photoshop to take my mood boards to the next level. I would be over the moon excited to win this giveaway!!

    althea mongerson says:

    I would love to use my new blogshop skills to take my small town yarn shop online!

    Sarah says:

    I would love to use my new blogshop skills on my own blog, and I would like to start an online business as well!

    Sabrina says:

    Hi, I’m from Taiwan and I’m learning flower in New York. Next month I will go back to Asia and plan to open flower shops in Shanghai and Taiwan. I wanna use skills from blogshop to refine my flower pictures and convey my aesthetic to my clients! Hope I can get a spot! 🙂

    Lauren says:

    Well first – Blogshop is just a kickass idea! And second – I’d use the class as a trampoline to jump off my small startup event design business. http://www.basheventdesign.com ! Thanks for the chance to try to win a spot 😀

    Courtney K says:

    I’d love to refresh my shortcut knowledge! Sometimes I feel like I’m always taking the long way 🙂

    Carolina says:

    I d love to take the blogshop online workshop! I own a small business that does textile design and I m in charge of social media and PR, been thinking about starting a blog also, and would like to produce original content for it! Learning Photoshop would make all of my work easier! I would stop depending on help from those who know, and I guess I would post more often on a more original way that relates to what is hovering in my mind and is so difficult to transmit through other mediums! Hope i’m lucky!!!

    Molly says:

    I’m a recent college grad without a lot of professional direction; I’ve been looking in to starting a blog and a small online shop for the handmade items I create. Taking the online bookshop course would be exactly the push I need to get my business on its feet and make my store really stand out. Plus I’ve always been curious what the course is like :)the photos are away adorable and the testimonials are glowing.

    Allison says:

    I would love to tale the online blogshop! I have always wanted to create my own blog and unique space, and recently just took the leap. I would love to hone my creative skills and learn to use photoshop to enhance my blogging!

    Alice says:

    I just learned to use Adobe Illustrator last year and have started to learn other Adobe programs, mostly on my own. I’m always amazed at what’s possible! After seeing all the great reviews, I’d love to learn Photoshop at Blogshop, especially because I’m a college student who’s just starting to learn graphic design. It’d also help a lot for some personal projects that I’m starting soon!

    Thanks!

    Megan says:

    I started my own photography business a few years ago, but I have yet to dive into a photo blog/website for my work. And I really want to do it! I’m a total bonehead when it comes to designing anything for the web, so I would really appreciate the opportunity to learn some tips and tricks from you brilliant people.

    Rachel says:

    I am a blogger who really wants to learn photoshop and would love the chance to take this class!

    Katie B says:

    I would be absolutely ecstatic to win a spot in this workshop. It would be a dream come true and just the thing I need! As the owner of a small business with just a small background in graphic design I desperately need all the skills and tricks of the trade I can tuck into my toolbox as I build my website and launch my blog. Not only do I want to expand my freelance graphic design business but I hand paint wooden signs that I sell so I am looking to launch a website that combines all of my loves into a Lifestyle website where I can share my love of life and creativity. Please pick me, a redheaded Irish girl, that could use a little extra luck this March 🙂 I promise your time and talent will be put to good use! I am determined to pursue my dreams over practicality for the rest of my life!

    Heather says:

    you are extraordinary! Tell me all your secrets;) There is always more to learn. I am a blogger with the heart of an entrepreneur. *fingerscrossed*

    Duyen says:

    I would definitely use my future blogshop skills to amp up my personal blog that I share with my good friend. Also, I’m graduating this May so learning some new skills would really be a resume booster! 😀 Crossing my fingersssss!!

    I would love to learn the skills to make my blog more professional looking. Back in the olden days I studied graphic design at university but it was so long ago that we learned how to do everything by hand rather than with a computer. Wow, that makes me sound ancient! All of my photoshop skills are self taught so I’d love a refresher on the basics and to learn a few tricks and more advanced techniques.

    Amanda says:

    As a visual artist (drawing and painting primarily) I self taught myself Photoshop about 12 years ago just to have fun with it and maybe make some digital art too. Now all these years later, I know the basics but am lacking the updated skills and confidence to use the program in a productive way. Once of my goals this year is to finally start my own blog. I would love to know how to maneuver around the program to create a standout blog for my artwork!

    Hey Bri! I’d love to take blogshop to improve my moodbards. As a web designer/developer I have to communicate my ideas with clients in a clear way for them. Also, I love layout design, and it would be a dream come true to learn from you in that front.

    Christine says:

    My boyfriend and I bought an old farm here in rural Nova Scotia about two years ago. We’ve been working towards opening a sheep dairy where our sheep milk will be made into cheese. We’re so excited about this new adventure and are in the process of creating a website/blog/brand around our newly minted farm, Harrier Hill. I would love to learn about creating the best online presence possible so we can reflect online our passion for this exciting new path that we’re on!

    Kelly says:

    I hAve always dreamed of taking blogshop! I’m a designer at an ad agency and I have wanted to start a blog for forever, I think blogshop would be the perfect jump start to that goal! And I need to brush up on my photoshop skills!

    Lauren says:

    ITS MY L U C K Y D A Y!!! I was just looking at the online class session dates last night and wanted to purchase it so badly. I was recently laid off from my job during a mass layoff and I’m trying to start my own creative consulting business for window display design. I am in desperate need to sharpen my skill set to create all my marketing materials and new website. Taking BLOGSHOP would allow me make me entrepreneur dreams come true without having to hire someone else to do the design work for me (which I can’t afford to do at the moment). Winning this contest would make me the happiest gal in all of LA!

    pauline le says:

    Heard so many great things about blogshop! Would love love love to win. I’m hoping to make my blog magical with the new photoshop skills I learn 🙂
    Thanks for the opportunity guys!

    Jacquelyn S. says:

    I would love the opportunity to participate in Blogshop! I use Creative Suite everyday as an event planner/graphic designer and also everynight as a small business owner, but I know I am not using photoshop anywhere near it’s full potential. Everything I’ve learned with Creative Suite was self taught. I know that with Blogshop I could be endlessly more productive and efficient! Plus I’ll be able to make my work 100x better!

    Oh! I would love to take Blogshop, but my budget is well, tight. I’m in the middle of redesigning my blog, so I would definitely use the skills I learn from Blogshop for that, but I’d also like to learn some basic graphic design skills and how to create better layouts for my posts. Eeee! Fingers crossed!

    Caitlin Liz says:

    I am a blogger/Etsy shop owner so I definitely want to use photoshop skills for that. I also really want to start exploring Graphic Design and Photography for future professional pursuits 🙂

    Aubrey says:

    I have been DYING to take a blogshop course!! Thank you so much for this opportunity to win =) I would use my new super awesome skills for my job and for a new blog that I’ve been getting ready to start. It would be so amazing to win!!

    Molly // tLp says:

    SO SO SO many things I’d love to learn! Photoshop and better blog posts are my main focuses right now! So great you’re doing this!

    Celi Merchant says:

    I work at a nonprofit that works to inspire young girls to be healthy, confident and joyful. We’re working on launching a blog for our website so I would love to be able to apply skills learned to accurately portray our brand and engage our supporters.

    I want to take the blogshop class:
    A) to learn photoshop ….. and use it for my small business – Morado (polymer clay art) http://www.morado.etsy.com
    B) to be inspired ….. and motivated to get the creative juices flowing!

    Mami says:

    I’m excited about the great opportunity to learn the skills online since I live in Tokyo. I’d love to use the skills for my blog and non-profit organization website which I have been managing. I’d like to learn how I can make the website more creative to attract our donators and sponsors, and also how I can save my time.

    SueJean says:

    I’m currently working on getting my bachelor’s degree in Marketing and have my foot in the wedding industry (shout out to Lovely Jubilee!). I want to use these skills to go into prop and editorial styling, and it’d be a great tool to use when editing photos!

    Karissa says:

    I would love to learn the skills to spruce up my blog theme and regular posts! It would be a great next step for me.

    kaela d. says:

    Oh my gosh…I would absolutely love to win a spot in your course! I’ve been trying to pinch pennies to make the March blogshop happen!!! It’s taking place on my birthday weekend and I would love to spend it learning about Photoshop and how it applies to blogging.

    I have been wanting to start a blog for so long because I am a writer by nature and education with a life full of stories and, of course, a blog-reading addiction. Also, I am getting my master’s degree in eLearning so I’m learning the ins and outs of HTML and website building. Having Photoshop skills in my repertoire would give me an edge in my program and boost my confidence in finally sharing a public blog! 🙂

    Jordan says:

    I am in the process of opening my own small business, and not only could blogshop launch my photoshop skills to get some amazing PR rolling for my business, but the graphic design skills I could take away from blogshop could be the extra special thing that makes that bank say yes to my loan application 🙂 Thank you for the opportunity to better myself!

    Jessa says:

    I’m an independent musician and I’ve been trying to make blogging a more regular part of my communication with fans and friends! I’d love to learn more about creating fresh content to drive people to my website rather than Facebook all the time 🙂

    Amaris says:

    I would love to attend Blogshop online to help better my posts and create an aesthetically-pleasing layout 🙂

    Alyssa says:

    I have a busy Etsy shop that grew fairly quickly over the past year… I do everything myself and could really use help/motivation/a break of any kind to keep me on track! I know working for yourself is such an awesome accomplishment, but it’s so hard when you don’t know where to turn next to take things up a level… Whether it be more social media interaction or just better processing of images. I only have my cats to talk to so interacting with other people in a creative industry would be an amazing change of pace!

    jill says:

    i would like to be a savvy photo-shopper to help launch my dream business of interior styling. i have found that these days photoshop is the high school diploma of design jobs. fingers crossed!

    chloe says:

    I want to learn Photoshop! I am perfectly capable in Illustrator and InDesign, but need to learn Photoshop.

    Hi, there! I am in the super rewarding business of CREATIVELY teaching social etiquette to girls ages 6-11 and business etiquette to young women just out of college. My passion is to instill self confidence in young girls so they will not be intimidated by social situations that success often brings (I had to learn the hard way!) Although I do provide scholarships, I am dying to learn photoshop to create beautifully designed FREE e-books for girls that may not be able to afford my minicamps or workshops! I love you guys – your blogshops heavily influence the creative way I teach my girls!!

    Kristine says:

    I would love to attend Blogshop online for many reasons. First, I am a Journalism student and I feel like I would get an edge when I work for my school paper or magazine with the knowledge from learning how to edit photos and layouts from the class. Two, I am a new blogger, and I always love learning and fixing my site. It would definitely help me master making more efficient posts, and editing photos and learn from the best! Last but not least, I’ve heard about Blogshop for awhile now, and dealing with anxiety, it gets difficult for me to attend meetings, so what could be more of a blessing than an online class?

    cait says:

    I’ve been DYING to take a Blogshop class! I’d put my new skills to use almost every day on my blog – I’ve been “faking it” design-wise for three years now and I’m ready to start doing things correctly!!

    I’ve been eye balling this class with green envy since last year. I really need to take my sketchy photoshop know-how to the next level, especially with hand-lettering to give a more contemporary look and feel to my blog. Thank you for offering up 5 class spots for giveaway. I promise not to disappoint the teacher (insert red apple here.) Cheers, Yvonne

    Trish F says:

    Hello, I would use what I learn on my blog, which has been on hold because I don’t have the slightest idea what to do in photoshop. All of the blogs I admire make beautiful banners and buttons using their pictures, but I am lost. Thanks for a great giveaway!

    Natalie says:

    Hi Bri! Your blog is such an inspiration to me and have always been so impressed by your beautiful graphics. I would love to learn how to use the tools in Photoshop to make the photos on my DIY blog really pop! Plus, I feel like I could learn lots of little tricks that can help save me time on my blog! I feel like I could use it much more efficiently!
    Thank you for doing this!
    Natalie

    Krysta says:

    I have always wanted to take a Blogshop class, but never have enough cash in my pocket! Taking this class would definitely help me start up my small business (To & Fro Magazine) and build websites on the side! I would love to learn more tips and tricks on how to use Photoshop to enhance your photos.

    Autumn says:

    I would just love to win a spot in your online class so I can infuse more pizzazz into my party planning biz.

    Dana Frost says:

    I am a new fashion blogger, so I would love to better my editing skills for my photographs as well as improve the branding for my website design. Thanks for the incredible opportunity! Fingers crossed!

    Wow- what a great giveaway! I have a foodblog and would love to learn so many things. GIFs would be huge, as well as how to pair text and add it to photos in a creative and appealing way. I really struggle with that and find myself copying what other people do way too much. Also how to make collages that aren’t just putting a few square and rectangular photos together.Fingers crossed I win a spot!

    vera b says:

    I have always wished I could attend a blogshop workshop so am ecstatic that you have started the online courses!
    I am a new graphic design student and looking at starting blogging and I think this class would be amazing!
    x

    I’m a photographer who loves to blog but wish I could make my posts and blog itself a little prettier! I would LOVE to learn how to make GIF’s they are SO fun. So many photography blogs are so boring and ugly, I’d love to be able to create one that is young and fun but lack the skillz. HALP!

    Elise says:

    I would use Blogshop to learn photoshop so I can get paid to do the design work my day job needs. Also, it would give me more flexibility and know how for my freelance photography!

    Kayla says:

    Kayla, here. I own a small business, and I think this class would be so helpful in helping it grow!

    I would love to further my online skills by attending Blogshop. I think there are so many new things to learn and you never know what you can get out of someone else’s perspective.. whether you’re a beginner or what your degree in design/web.

    April says:

    I’m an American living in Thailand where let’s face it, by American standards, I make less than poverty level wages and I’m here to learn more about myself and grow through life as an expat and will soon be moving to my newly-found mother’s village to see if I can connect with her and my Thai family. I’m working on a total re-design for my blog as I really want it to take some other directions with the evolution of what it is to be an expat. I want my blog to stand out from all the other boring, standard-template-looking expat blogs out there – a place where lifestyle and expat/travel blogs meet and fall in beautiful, well-designed love.

    kelly p. says:

    I would love to start my blog! I feel that I have all these ideas in my head but I don’t know how to translate it online. My boyfriend is also starting his own company and it would be great to apply these lessons to his site and social media to get a buzz for his clothing line 🙂 I’m dying to take blogshop but can’t afford it

    kiah says:

    im a crafter who has just started her own blog and would love to learn how to make it prettier! I really want my blog to become a business not just a hobby, and to do that it needs to look wayyy more professional! Ive always wanted to do blogshop but live in Australia and missed out when you girls came over a while ago – something I’ve regretted ever since! so online blogshop is a really cool opportunity for me and heaps of other! thanks for this awesome giveaway bri xx

    Natasha says:

    I’ve been teaching yoga for just about a year and I’d love to learn blogging skills to expand my ability to share pictures, inspiration, and tips. There’s so much potential I just need to learn how to let everyone see!

    Ingrid says:

    I need tools! I need the blogshop tools! I’d love to start a blog, and I’d love to spruce up the blog at my workplace, it definitely needs some sprucing!

    Zyanna says:

    If I won, I would give this to my best friend Jenn, who just recently quit her corporate job to start blogging and will be attending journalism school next fall to pursue her dream. She has not always been the most tech literate ;)but is learning fast and I think this course would be the best gift to get her on her way.

    I’d use blogshop to have more fun with my posts! Animated gifs would be so much fun to add to my blog. Fingers crossed!

    Kelly says:

    I work in content and would LOVE to take blogshop to get a better grip on my Photoshop skills. I’ve been teaching myself inDesign through online video tutorials, just clicking around and through trial & error. Photoshop is what I’ve been looking to conquer next! I also have a food truck in the making and would love to have a bigger role in the creative side of the site and truck design.

    What a great tutorial you girls have started! Thanks for offering both the in-person and online versions – makes it very accessible to all.

    I would use my BlogShop learned Photoshop skillz to make pretty pinnable title pics/collages for my blog posts…and animated gifs…I’m sure they’re super easy to do but so far the process has completely eluded me…would love to participate and soak it all in!!

    Genie says:

    two friends and i have been constantly talking about starting a blog for yonks- and this one is our favourite because of the awesome layout and design 🙂 It would be awesome to be able to have the skills to create a beautiful site for the ultimate confidence boost to share our frequent chats about fashion, art and design!

    Gloria says:

    Wow! I’d be so freaking excited if I won! I’m the marketing coordinator for a concert venue and outsource a lot of our creative material but I’d love to learn how to better utilize Photoshop instead of bugging our poor designer to do it for me! Also, I’ve been playing around with the idea of starting my own blog highlighting my favorite fashion trends, music and chronicling my mishaps in the kitchen and this workshop would definitely help me work through the trials and tribulations of the creative content I’d post. I hope I win!

    Sierra says:

    I have been wanting to take blogshop for ages! I would love to take this course in order to help with my small business. I currently have an Etsy shop and am in the process of setting up my own website/blog. I would love to be able to up my photoshop skills so I can create beautiful content and marketing materials for my brand!

    Katie says:

    This would FINALLY give me the push (and confidence) I need to get my blog off the ground… It’s been a long time coming!!

    Jenna says:

    I’d use my new Blogshop skills to become better at graphic design. I’d like to start a blog and potentially help local businesses

    vivian says:

    i would love to be able to attend a blogshop online course! i have been eyeing the course for quite some time, but haven’t been able to justify the cost as a Stay at Home Mom. i have a family blog and would love to be able to learn how to spruce it up. i’m also really interested in learning how to efficiently use Photoshop for my blog posts!

    Ashley says:

    I need this class so bad! I would use it to learn how to photoshop pictures of my work and post to my blog/social media sites. I taught myself the basics of Photoshop, but I’m pretty sure all of my methods are the absolute longest way around possible!

    Lauren says:

    I would love to win a spot because I am about to quit my day job to continue building my own event business and I know beefing up my skills is a must. Right now I just can’t seem to get my blog to be of interest to even me! I need to be able to inspire, inform and create. Please, please, please let me in! P.s. I have a great location for a blogshop in LA if you are ever interested.

    Krystel says:

    I have just started a food/travel blog with my partner and I can’t tell you how useful a Blogshop class would be! Especially when it comes to getting a handle on how to use Photoshop! I’m living in Perth, Australia and am so glad this is open internationally. I will make it to a workshop one day (in person)!

    Sabrina says:

    I started three different Blogs in the last five years, and just because I was frustrated with my lack of photoshop skills each of them died a slow and painful design death.
    Ever since I heard about your Blogshop classes I so want to go but I’m a student and do not have that much money. So this free spot would really help me to bring my baking blog to the next level.

    Amanda says:

    This is such a great opportunity, especially since I’m currently living in Beijing AND trying to pay off a massive student loan! I would use my new skills to prettify my blog!

    P.S. The “which will you choose” graphic on the Blogshop home page is awesome!

    Anonymous says:

    Hi Bri,
    I have 2 blogs & am starting a 3rd which will be my own business inspiring women to own and drive their careers in the direction they want. I’m super passionate about my audience & want to create an amazing space that captures my ideas, colors palettes and passion. I’m a doer and would value this opportunity more than I could say. Pick me, Pick me!! 🙂

    Lisa Kate says:

    I have just started a new blog and my design skills really hold me back when it comes to creating my dream posts. I did a photoshop course years ago and the none of what they taught was suitable for any real things you actually have to do on a website. I live in Australia and would love to chance to do your course as I missed out on doing it IRL when you were here. Thanks for the chance xx

    Megan says:

    I freaked out when I read this blog post! I love blogshop and I love designlovefest, I think it’s so cool that you, Bri and Angela, spread this knowledge and that aspired writers/bloggers like me have the change to learn from the best!

    I love writing and my dream is to one day have a successful blog that inspires people and where I can write about fashion, budgeting, home decor, photography, diets and cooking. I know that pictures and design are such an important part of a blog and I love blogs like these, where everything looks so pretty and professional! I want just that, a blog that looks professional and where both the writing and design is great! Only problem, how? I know my way around Photoshop, but I can never manage to make beautiful collages, texts, headers etc. It would be a dream if I would get chosen. I was saving up for the online course, but unfortunately it’ll take some more months, so if I would be able to join the March course for free … I mean, that would be pretty freaking awesome!!!!!

    All the best,
    Megan

    Kristin V. says:

    I’m starting a small business for photography and I would love to have more knowledge on how to make my design better and how to design for a blog as part of my brand and website. It would be amazing to be coached by some of the coolest chicks around in the design world!

    Valerie says:

    Would love to attend this online Blogshop to improve my Photoshop skills and spice up the blog in a unique way. Hopefully I’ll be able to pick up some short cuts and tricks along the way as well!

    Nicki M says:

    I would be absolutely thrilled to be able to take the Blogshop course! I am a blogger and (very amateur) photographer, and my skills are incredibly outdated. The ability to enhance my photos, especially for my blog, would be a huge step toward my dream of being a freelance artist/blogger/writer. Photoshop has become such an important skill to have for almost all art and design fields. Thanks for doing this giveaway, Bri!
    Cheers

    Reem says:

    I had a blog before that I were always thinking it lacks attractive graphics. I am going to start a new blog, and one of my main goals is to enhance the blog appearance. Hope I win 😀

    Marta M says:

    I’d love to fulfil my life-long dream of becoming a pro photographer and also work on my blog a bit. I need your help, Blogshop!!!! 😀

    Cristina Burdo says:

    I would love to start a blog also for promoting my new Etsy shop. I sell iPhone cases and even if I already know how to use Photoshop I’m sure that I’ll learn something new and precious from you. I’m from Italy so I won’t have the opportunity to know you in person. May the luck be with me! 🙂 Thanks so much for this wonderful giveaway!

    Rachel says:

    I would work on making my blog a bit more unique layout wise, as well as being able to combine some fun visual elements in my recipe posts to make them less run of the mill too. In two months time I’m going freelance for my writing full time, which is both super exciting and super scary! Obviously the better my blog is, it will hopefully a) help me get work, and b) become a bigger part of my business!

    Anna says:

    I would love to win a place so that I can jazz up my blog, I have started working on a new design but am seriously held back by my lack of skills in Photoshop!! It would be an amazing opportunity to take part in your fantastic class!!

    I´d love to get back into blogging more and learn a lot about time efficiency. I am starting out as an artist and illustrator and I want to be brave enough to actually show what I do. Since I don´t live anywhere near, I would use the at-home option. 🙂
    This year has many things to offer and I don´t want to freak out over it. Any help would be desperately needed!
    THANK YOU!!!

    Paola says:

    My blog is quite young and I’m now setting up new amazing columns. I need to improve my photoshop skills in order to be faster and more self confident in using it.

    mal says:

    I am a graphic designer who is always keen to learn new things, hoping that some of Bri’s coolness and kick ass skills will rub off on me. Better yet, team come and host a blogshop in South Africa. Pretty please?

    Nour says:

    Hi!
    I have been a huge fan of Designlovefest and the blogshops that you give.
    Unfortunately i am based between Kuwait and London and have never had the chance to be in London when you gave the classes, which i’m eagerly waiting for to meet you in person. I am a recent graduate and freelance illustrator and designer, who is starting up my own business and would love to improve my skills and to learn from the best of the best. I hope to get the chance to it would be a dream come true.

    Bernice says:

    While I’m still crossing my fingers for you to come to Australia, I’d absolutely love an opportunity to take your online class! I’m a blogger and I’ve been struggling to revamp my blog. It looked okay a couple years ago but it’s time for a change. Having my personal blog got me a job at my friend’s small business as a social media co-ordinator and copywriter. With my husband in med-school (racking up debt!) and two boys at home to look after, this is the best way for me to support our family, and I love doing it! I just need to improve my skills, so Blogshop would help me so, so much. Thanks for the chance to win!

    Astrid says:

    I would absolutely jump up and down with JOY! if I won this AMAZING prize! This is is the kickstart I need to start my own design blog! I am a complete beginner with photoshop and I need all the help I can get! Being able to learn from a pro like Bri who has such great, fresh style, while also being able to rewind and watch the videos at my own pace is EXACTLY what I need. Am crossing my fingers I am one of the lucky 5!!!!!

    Helena says:

    I’m a photographer, so I use Photoshop on a regular basis for editing photos. I’d love to learn more about graphic related stuff though, and improve my design skills, especially to create unique content for my blog. Thank you so much for this opportunity, it’s such a great giveaway!

    Petra says:

    Hi! I plan a trip to California, to see all the great places I know from your and ohjoy’s blog and Instagram feed and many more. I would love to create a beautiful blog with all my adventures I will live to see.

    Nikki says:

    I would love to make a beautiful blog ! I know how to use photoshop, but would love to learn the other things that make a blog work.

    Hannah says:

    I am in the process of launching a blog now! I need my website’s content to look a very particular way, and I won’t be able to do that without some sort of Photoshop education. I can’t afford the class otherwise (college budget), so it would mean the world if I could snag a spot in your class. I have been watching the recaps since the beginning and even have this class in my 3 year plan for my blog! Oh, pretty, pretty please?!

    Charlotte says:

    I would LOVE to win a place on blogshop! It looks like so much fun! I run my own graphic design business and I am constantly looking for new tricks and inspiration for my work. I would love to start blogging and I think blogshop would certainly start that off!

    ximena says:

    I want to start my own business, and the first step for this (before I quit my dayjob) is to create a website/blog. For this to be successful, I need a photoshop course ASAP! I have a frustrated designer in me, so this would be like a dream come true, besides being the first of many steps towards my dream job too 🙂

    Bia says:

    Since I discovered DESIGN LOVE FEST, I started have interest in this blogs world!
    My friends and I want to create a blog but we don’t know a lot of photoshop, HTML, how to improve our blog, etc.
    We love photography, interior design, architecture, web design and we are studying product design at school.
    We want to have fun with the blog in our free time!
    Thank you for this opportunity! 😀

    Nnenna says:

    I would use the skills to help make me a better blogger! I’ve been writing on my lifestyle/fashion blog for a while now, but I know there’s definitely room for improvement. Thank you for this giveaway!

    Erin Grimson says:

    I am a photographer, so Photoshop is a part of my daily operation. I would love to learn ways to better integrate Photoshop into my blog and website. I am always craving change and fresh inspiration in the format and content of my online presence and I know Blogshop would provide that and more. And a chance to hear from leading creatives in our industry always inspires and encourages me.

    Mia says:

    I have been wanting to start a blog for a long time now. Since I am from Switzerland, the online class would be perfect for me. I feel like I have so many ideas, but I don’t know enough about photoshop to execute them. Your blog is such an inspiration, thank you!

    I’m a blogger and really need to up my game with design skills for my blog DLK. Having two little girls running around at home, this would be an awesome way to learn!

    Lindsay says:

    I do most of the design for my office, a mission trip program I run, for the non- profit summer camp I’m on the boad of and my friends weddings. Being completely self taught, I’m always looking for ways to elevate my game. This would be perfect.

    I own a small handmade business and learn new skills to make a better communication with my clients through my blog is my goal to make this course. Photos and finalized and processed in photoshop and an interesting design can make a much more effective communication. I hope to win!

    Hanna says:

    I’m a blogger, so having prettier blogposts (and actually knowing what I’m doing when I’m using photoshop) would be awesome. I’d also really like to have more professional posts for work as well, so it would be kind of two in one 🙂

    rachel says:

    i can’t even tell you how much i want to win this. i will make my silly old blog sing with your help.

    jaine says:

    I’m a photographer and blogger. I would love to learn how to make my posts more unique and fun to include my own style and handwriting. i’d like to create looks for my weekly column’s and posts. i’d love the opportunity to learn from blogshop! xo

    Stephanie says:

    I’m a relatively new blogger in Taipei + would looove to learn the skills to make my posts more beautiful + informative! I’m also thinking about working on an entire guide to the myriad of amazing cafes and little shops scattered all through Taipei’s leafy lanes–there hasn’t been a guide yet + learning how to better use Photoshop would be the perfect chance to learn the skills to create the guide. So in essence, learning the skills that Blogshop teaches would benefit all future visitors to Taipei (well, ones that love cute cafes and secret, colorful shops and cool places and so forth!)

    Corinne says:

    I am a blogger but I’m also a developer. I can write code but I could use some practice with the creative, artistic side of things. Would love to take a class with you guys to learn!

    Monica says:

    I would like to learn how make a post, I want to learn how to balance and create visual equilibrium. I am from Mexico. I would love and enjoy taking an online class. I am always inspired from every detail and effort you guys put into the blogshops.

    Valeria says:

    I would love to have some fun and learn how to play with technology + beauty in this Blogshop! About me and why I think this would help me? Well I had a blog once and I’m planning to make a comeback soon. I’m a young entrepreneur working for a dream come true… running a small vintage shop in Puerto Rico. I’d worked in advertising for a looong time but I quit 2 yearss ago to take this adventure. Now I’m working on my online shop (talking about perfect timing!) while I’m the happiest person doing what I really like. I’m very creative but I don’t have photoshop experience at all so I’m sure this class would make the difference in my small business and personal life. I’m looking for a new world of creativity, so I’m sure this would occupy my mind for a while and it’s going to be the perfect next step for the shop 🙂

    Laurie says:

    I would love to learn how to create mood boards

    I am a newbie blogger and would love to learn things like how to schedule posts, social media sharing tips and timing of posts, and also ad network advice. But aside from the “business” of blogging, just overall how to make my writing and posts more accessible, creative and enjoyable to my audience. Thanks!

    I’m a blogger and an online shop owner and would love to learn how to make my posts prettier!

    hi! i would use this course for improving my new blog. i have a “sketchbook project” where i show my recent work and i would love to get some ideas to show it in a more appealing and personalized way! i have some skills using photoshop for photographs but i would love to extend my knowledge including using photoshop for my blog!

    great idea to offer this internationally! i really hope you’d come to germany once in a while but that’s kind of unrealistic, isn’t it? :/ i am a student, so i would highly appreciate being one on the lucky ones winning a seat! 🙂

    Jaclyn says:

    Oh my my! This would be so amazing. I have been months in the making of my very own blog (eek!) and would love to learn more about Photoshop and making mood boards, as well as all around pretty and cute posts! My goal for my blog is to share art, fashion and any other musings I have at the time, with others like me. You girls are so inspirational and I want to inspire others. Thank you for giving people this chance to win such an amazing prize. You girls rock!!

    Ah this is incredible! I would LOVE to take part in the wonderful world that is blogshop! I would use the skills to make major, major improvements to my personal blog Darling Cashmere. And would then continue to use these skills as I take on a hopeful new career as founder and Event Designer with Darling Events! Gaining skills and know-how from blogshop would put my long-term goals in the forefront of my priorities and I see myself being able to jump on my dreams much quicker!

    XOXO,
    Rebecca

    I am just about to take my mini knitting business to the next level by setting up my own website where I’ll sell knitting kits, made to order items and patterns:) I would LOVE to take part in BLOGSHOP so that my website is as pretty as yours <3

    Libby says:

    What a great opportunity! Photoshop skills would help me in my job – I coordinate volunteers for a small art and history Museum in Ohio and am constantly creating little postcards, e-blasts, and such. It would be amazing to be able to do more!

    chelse says:

    This would be an amazing opportunity for me. Right now my life is transitioning from being a photography and graphic design teacher in high school to my own business. I will be super honest I am emotional, scared out of my mind, and feeling like I am in a design slump. I feel like if I could take this online class it would help push my creativity in a new direction. I would love help from you beautiful people at blogshop! This is my pathetic SOS

    Tyler Anne says:

    I run a craft/life/inspiration blog and would love to learn more advanced techniques in Photoshop to help make each post look that much more special. I’ve always been a fan of DLF and am just over the moon in love with the design of it and blogshop!

    Liz says:

    Everytime I see you guys travelling around the world doing Blogshops I wish you include Latin America in your list!. Im so excited to hear now the Blogshop is available for everyone!!. Thanks for that. I would love to win a spot! 🙂 I’m looking to start my Blog, but always get dissapointed as seeing such beautiful blogs out there. And my knowledgement in Photoshop is null!. I have tried to follow tutorials and books, but never get to make nice things like the things I see in your blog. Would loooooooooveeeeee to know the secrets to make my photos as pretty as the ones in your site!

    Taylor says:

    My husband and I are leading a team to an orphanage in China for children with special needs this May. We are taking a team of therapists, college students, a lawyer, a musician with the purpose of scoping out their needs for support/fundraising for surgeries/rehabilitation, adoption, therapy needs, recruiting Chinese volunteers, and for loving on children- OF COURSE! This will hopefully blossom into a long term relationship for our family and our community. This would be the perfect time for me to learn some new skills to employ when I get home. The more people know, the more people will step in and help. I plan on blogging the experience to spread the word and let people know how they can help. I have a list of 39 babies & children with special needs who need MY help. YOUR help. With the right Photoshop skills and blogging tips I could make a bigger impact for the kiddies. I also would use the skills to help my husband with his new music website… He needs some social media encouragement as it doesn’t come naturally to him! I have been stalking your website for a chance to attend in person, but the dates/logistics haven’t worked out YET!! I’m saving my airline miles for you guys 🙂

    Oh gosh! I’ve been lusting for all of your classes every since I discovered Design Love Fest! I definitely want to attend one, though need to get my finances in order a little more before making the investment!

    I am a blogger looking into selling some of my photos. I am also working for a social media marketing company that promotes local businesses.

    Sooooooo(!), the possibilities of the class are really endless for me! I know the basic technical skills of Photoshop, but would love to have the insight of a really amazing team of designers on how to best utilize those skills!

    I love designing, but I don’t always know how to best utilize programs to create all the ideas floating in my head!

    This giveaway is a great opportunity for me and I would love to attend! Thanks for the opportunity 🙂

    I’m a blogger looking to step up my blogging game and take my blog to the next level! I want my graphics to look polished and professional, and ooze their own unique style so that my readers can identify my graphics from a mile away!

    This would be an absolute dream!! I blog but unfortunately the whole thing isn’t fabulous, the photography is slightly lacking and layout isn’t fabulous I’ve been saving for a spot on the online course for a while – however due to my disability I’ve had to have a while off work which hasn’t helped the saving 🙁 so this would be an absolute dream!

    Indigo says:

    I’ve always been a self-taught photoshop gal, and for 21 years that’s served me just fine. But going forward, as a blogger who is trying to make an income, as a student who will always love learning, I need to push myself when it comes to Photoshop. I’ve been yearning to attend Blogshop for ages and was devastated when I couldn’t afford to go when it was in Austin. To be able to take the online course — go over some basics and get out of my comfort zone — would be one of the highlights of my year, as well as invaluable to my business and life prospects moving forward.

    J. says:

    I self-taught myself about photoshop. I know how to enhance an img, the rest ..only this = much. It would be great to actually learn from the expert.

    em says:

    I love the look of your blog very much, I would love to learn from experts on how to make mine look better!
    I am looking for inspiration and skills!

    Vanessa says:

    I would love to learn more about photoshop to improve my photography. I am starting my own blog and know that this would be extremely beneficial!

    I am a photographer, blogger and party planner. The skills I will learn in the online Blogshop will help me in all these areas and it will assist me in creating more beautiful products for my clients.

    Kendall says:

    As an accountant I have absolutely no need for photoshop skills…which is sad. I love being creative, and I need to find an outlet. This would be a great avenue to utilize my creativity outside of work. Pick me. please. boom.

    Christina says:

    DIT&O is a blog and a business! We’d love to make it prettier! 😉

    Erica says:

    I’ve been dreaming of taking blogshop since I first found your blog but of course could never travel to the class. This would be ah-mazing to win!! I’m a blogger and would love to make my blog prettier and learn how to do gifs. Oh and I’ve been wanting to start up a small online business that I think would definitely benefit from taking blogshop!! Keeping my fingers crossed!!

    Carolyn says:

    I own my photography business and would love the opportunity to attend Blogshop online. I use Lightroom exclusively to edit my photos and have a basic working knowledge of Photoshop, but would love to be an expert! My website and blog would benefit greatly from the skills I would learn from Blogshop. Here’s to hoping I win!

    Kristiana says:

    I work in marketing and communications, and although I don’t have a direct need in my specific role to know photoshop, Blogshop would be a great way to learn new skills and find new inspiration. More than that though, I dream of one day making a career shift into photography, and I know Blogshop would be a big step towards giving me the skills and the confidence I need to take this leap! Fingers crossed!

    lily glass says:

    My photography branding could use a little kick-in-the-pants! The opportunity to attend an online class is much more realistic given that most of my time is spent running a small business or chasing a running toddler… Thanks for this chance!

    Merissa says:

    I’d love to do the Blogshop Online! I’m a crafter/blogger, and I currently rely on my boyfriend for my photography and photoshop needs. But, I’m a do-it-self kinda girl, and it would be so useful to be able to jump in and create interesting content on my own. Fingers crossed!

    Hi Bri and Blogshop team! I am soo extremely excited that I just saw this giveaway- I’m an American graphic designer living in Germany and have followed your blog for awhile. I myself have an online shop for prints and cards, but I really want to get into blogging for my business and overall design life experiences. I need some specific help with crafting beautiful blog posts that will get some attention, and I know you are just the gals to help me do it! Thanks for the giveaway and have a lovely day.

    Allison says:

    I’m currently in my second year of design school and planned to blog my way through the experience. I just really haven’t had any extra time. Blogshop would be a great way to learn time saving tricks about making beautiful blog posts.

    I would take the at home class (unfortunately I work full time and could not make it to NY class on March 20-21. I have a very young lifestyle/DIY/everything blog (started in October) and I could REALLY use some photoshop tips and tricks to elevate it to the next level. And I once had a dream that I should photoshop my pugs faces onto donuts and make fridge magnets out of them, so I’d like to see that as a reality!

    Pau Sa says:

    I own a small business (coffee roasters) and I practically do everything that covers design. Our logo, business cards, ads, etc…. It can take hours since I play around with photoshop and other tools without being a pro. So this class would give me the huge opportunity to learn photoshop, which means I will be better at putting my ideas into action !!! I am sooo excited for this giveaway !!

    Meghan says:

    I use photoshop occasionally for my photography and some of the design work I do, but I’d really love to learn more! I’d also like to start a blog, and developing new photoshop skills to use for that would be incredibly useful!

    I definitely want to take my blog to the next level & have it look more professional. I really want to grow my blog this year & improve my photo editing for my personal use too!

    Jenny Morris says:

    Hi Blogshop! Thank you for this giveaway. I am going to be using the next few months to practice my photography and photoshop skills because I want to be a cocktail writer and stylist. I have a cocktail column on a local women’s lifestyle site where I develop recipes and then style them. Check it out here! (http://www.shedoesthecity.com/author/jenny-morris) Unfortunately my photography and editing skills are not up to par so my roommate and brother takes the pictures and then photoshops them. I would absolutely love to take this class in addition to the A Beautiful Mess “Mastering Your DSLR” class that I signed up for earlier this week so that I can run the show come summer!

    I would just love to learn anything and everything you have to teach! I want to work on being more organized with my posting.

    I have a small upholstery business that has huge potential but I want my website, logo and style to keep up with it. I have some Photoshop experience but it is very limited and hasn’t gone beyond the ability to do simple straightforward things. Your blogshop is exactly what I need to ensure that my brand matches what I want to portray to my clients on my site! Also, you guys rock. Thanks!

    Alessia says:

    I am a blogger and I would love to learn how to use photoshop in a more professional manner, as I mostly use it to crop and make minor editing adjustments (while not really knowing what I’m doing). I want my blog to look more professional, and I think that understanding photoshop will be half the battle (if not more than half). This is such a great opportunity, thanks so much for the chance!!!

    Alessia

    I have been dying to attend blogshop! I have a blog that is in serious need of design help. I would much rather learn how to do things myself than have someone else do it.

    AH! I am a start-up blogger with some skills under my belt, but I am so incredibly eager to perfect what I know so that I can create a better impact on my readers! I would love love love this opportunity and use it to bless others through my blog. Thank you!

    candis press says:

    My best friend and I started Sweet T Studios ourselves. We are super creative, and love what we do, which is capturing love in photos and videos for our clients to remember it forever. Since we run the website and blog ourselves, including all the marketing and creative things on our blog, I feel like Blogshop would help me immensely to be able to express our creativity freely.

    Also… we are huge DLF fans!

    christie says:

    I’ve been lusting over your blogshop classes for months! Design is what makes me tick, and I feel like I’ve only scratched the surface with Photoshop. I love practicing my skills and coming up with new designs for my blog, KiKiMac.me, and I am also fortunate to have designing marketing materials be a part of my responsibilities at my full-time job. I just know I’d learn so many valuable tools to use in my professional and personal life. And it would be so FUN!
    xoxo,
    Christie

    Angela says:

    I would love to take the Blogshop class so I could have more freedom at work. I’m a social media specialist for a beauty company and often times I have to pitch design ideas and wait for artwork to come back to me and being able to have more creative freedom would help cut down the turnaround time. Keep social media timely and current is so important and having better Photoshop skill would wonderful!

    I’ve recently been promoted to the social media/marketing position (it’s something I created by insisting the spa I work for should appeal to a younger clientele) at work, and I could really use the help to take us from blase to engaging. I was super excited at first, bursting with ideas, but now I’m stuck creatively. I think this class could really benefit my work for the spa and help build my resume. I’m trying to leave my small town, so I want something to show for myself when I attempt to find a job elsewhere.
    Long story short, I would appreciate a chance to improve my skills! Thanks for hosting this giveaway, I know everyone is excited about it.

    Kristy says:

    Wow, I am a total newbie to photoshop, but I would so dearly love the chance to learn! I admire your website and vision and I would very much appreciate learning the tools to to make my blog as innovative and stylish as yours. Thanks for the opportunity to win such a fabulous prize1

    Nicole L says:

    I have always wanted to have lovely photos I have taken around my home. I would use blogshop to help me learn how to edit photos properly.

    jenna says:

    I would use it as a learning experience to expand my breadth of skills and focus on design and style. I have a pain for life and need to learn the best ways to display these in blog form.

    Stephanie Harris says:

    I am a lover of beautiful imagery. I am also a lover of trying to do, and learn everything! I love photography, and also have an online jewelry store which needs showcasing. My goal is to bring to life all the stunning images I have floating around in this mind of mine. It would be a wonderful opportunity to learn from you, you are such an inspiration.

    Chelsea says:

    I would use Blogshop to further my skills and passion for handwritten type and calligraphy and bring that aesthetic to a digital platform– bridging personal handwritten text to graphics, posts and other features.

    Being a recent graduate, I am trying to gain some sustainable and financial stability and independence– while also trying to sell vintage clothes I’ve collected over the years by branding myself and my own online shop.

    Tia C says:

    I live in the UK and have always dreamed about attending to one of you classes. Unfortunately I wasn’t able to sign up for London last time you were there so this would be a great opportunity. Hopefully I then may feel confident enough to start my own blog which would be about kids fashion design, daily family life and things I love.

    Hannah says:

    I am in the process of building a new blog, its a bit overwhelming at the moment and this would be a great help. Also my sister has a new photography business so it would be great to be able to help her out as well.

    alejandra says:

    i am building my own online store!! my website would sure thank blogshop!!!

    Sara says:

    I’m half way through my first year of owning my own business as my full time job! This would help me take it to the next level!

    Kelleigh says:

    I would LOVE LOVE LOVE to win a spot in your online Blogshop! I work for a small business, and I’m their Social Media Coordinator/Blogger. I have NO (read: zip, nada, zero) skills with photoshop and I would love to kick our blog into the next level with some of your great knowlege! 🙂 PLEASEEEE pick me!

    Tessa Tuttle says:

    Wow, this would be such fun – & perfect timing! I have just sold the first business I started, & am turning my attention to writing & blogging while helping my husband start his own online store. The benefit being able to do all these clever photoshop things myself would be invaluable – as I learned by *not& being able to do them for my previous business.
    #pickme 🙂

    Carlen says:

    Pick me, pick me! 🙂 I started my own wedding decor business (http://www.hostandtoast.net) this summer, and I would love to learn more about Photoshop for both editing product photography and digital graphic advertising.

    I wanted to major in graphic design in college, but my parents convinced me that I shouldn’t take the “unreliable” art career path. So, I finished college, got a safe job teaching high school for two years, and recently quit to start my own business, proving them wrong!

    I mainly work with CorelDRAW now in order to create graphics for my laser-cutter, but I would love an education in Photoshop. I love everything you do on Design Love Fest, and I think I literally “like” every photo on your Instagram feed! Thanks for the opportunity!

    As an art student, I am swimming in a world of creatives all trying to get their name out there. I would love this opportunity to learn more about how to express myself on and through the computer. Design, color, textiles, pattern are my passions, and I am craving another outlet to start a business and promote creativity through the internet in a blog. Creativity, art, and design should be shared, and this class would really help me get to where I want to be. Having interned as a display coordinator at Anthropologie, and hoping to soon become one, I would use this class to showcase my portfolio as well as to showcase other artists and creatives. I would really love this boost more than anything. It would really mean the world to me to be able to learn from some of the best.

    Dale says:

    I own a small business and would like to better use the blog to gain followers. This workshop would be the inspiration I need!

    Alexe says:

    Hi hi hi! First of all, your Thailand photos? Swoon. I loved keeping up with your trip on instagram and seeing all the amazing stuff you guys were up to. I’m horrible at leaving blog comments but have been such a huge fan of yours for a long time, so thank you for being so fun/awesome/inspirational.

    As far as the class, ho.ly.shit. would I love to win a spot! I’m in the early stages (it take so so sooooo much planning) of starting a photography/food/craft/everything pretty website, and I am awful with photo and blog skills. I have blogged here and there for years but due to my lack of real expertise, haven’t gotten very far. But aside from all of that, I’m also preparing to open my own flower/antique shop, which requires a lot of those same elements, and a website as well, and your class would be invaluable. To be totally honest, even if I don’t get chosen I’ll probably spend a hunk of a paycheck one of these months to get into your class, because it’s probably my best bet for learning the basics and getting a good start on things. Plus you are the freakin cutest, and I’d just have so much fun learning from you! So anyway. There’s my long story, but regardless, thank you so much for all the beautiful and inspiring things you post — it’s a big blog world out there, but yours is undoubtedly one of the best.

    kate McPike says:

    I’m a graphic/fashion designer, who loves interior design as well. I always want to start my own blog, but never give myself enough time to finish it. I feel Blogshop would give me the tools and time to finally get myself out there 🙂

    Alex H says:

    I am graduating this May and entering the Public Relations/Design industry – so having the skills learned in Blogshop while applying to jobs would be incredible. It would look so amazing to have this stuff on my resume and would help me so much in my career!!

    Sarah Zlotnick says:

    Have been following Blogshop for years now! I’m on the editorial team at a wedding tech company, and our team is constantly overlooked because I’m not quite sure our upper management really believes in the power of content. Blogshop would help me improve my blog posts and graphics for stories, which could help change my boss’s mind about the value of the work we do. Thanks for considering!

    Reva says:

    I would definitely use this course to brush up on my very limited skills! I’m a calligrapher/letterer as well as a blogger, and I feel that this course would definitely help me expand my skills! I would use the course to be able to edit my photos more, as well as create new designs for my blog and my shop! This is such an amazing opportunity, and you gals are lovely for offering it to all of us! Thank you!

    Katiuska says:

    I’m a blogger since 2010, and i need this blogshop a lot!!!!! to do something better for my blog, my blog to me is like my message to the world, because everything I post there is a piece of me, of my mind and my heart, and I definitely will like to improve my post. I live in the Caribbean what means that I can’t take the classes for the moment in US, and right now I don’t have the money to pay the blogshop online, so for me it will be like a dream come true wins this.

    Reba says:

    Hi There! I’ve owned a small business (two actually) for the past five years and I spend so much time doing graphic design for marketing both of these collections. I would love to get more knowledge on how to streamline my workflow with tips and tricks to make marketing more beautiful but also less of a time suck. Yikes!

    Anelieze says:

    I feel like I’m so behind on photoshop’s tips and tricks–I still use CS4 :/ so, I could really use creative focus to be able to use photoshop to its fullest for my blogging and graphic design business! Excited, thanks!

    Christine says:

    As an already occasional blogger for over 3 years, I’d love to improve my tech skills. I’ve been telling myself I’d learn Photoshop for years now and it’s just never happened. Your online course could teach me the skills I need to move my blog forward. I’d seriously love this opportunity!

    Catherine says:

    I would LOVE to win a Blogshop class. I’m a 21-year old Interior Design student about to graduate with no clue what the next step will be. I’ve very recently turned to blogging as an outlet to explore other areas of design, particularly graphic design. It’s been a real struggle since I don’t know the first thing about keeping up a good blog but I’m not giving up! Blogshop would be the best way to amp up my skills and help me create something I can really be proud of!

    Ellen Mote says:

    I have always wanted to attend blogshop as the photos and reviews look so dreamy. Winning an online class would be the best of both worlds as I work full time during the day and work on my blog/photography in the evenings. Although I know how to edit photos, that is where my photoshop skill end. Bri- I need your help!

    summer light says:

    I have been dying to sign up for blogshop, and be apart of something I have looked up to for some time now. All of the photos you post are absolutely amazing!! I have been struggling on how to design my blog and your blog and blogshop really inspire me. I would like to use blogshop to improve my skills to improve my blog.

    gg says:

    I’d use my new skills on making sure my business website was where it needs to be to attract the right clients. this is my year to bust out so obviously blogshop would help push that over the edge! xog

    Whitney says:

    This is so great! I love that I can do it from my own home! I would use the photoshop knowledge that I would gain to spruce up a blog I have been neglecting because I feel discouraged about the appearance of it but don’t know how to make it better on my own! I would also love to use it to broaden my horizons with my new found love of calligraphy. Being able to pair the 2 and dream up designs for blogs and logos and anything else my heart desires would be amazing!

    lisa siebert says:

    w o w • this would be a super duper fun experience learning photoshop from you!
    I have my own handmade little business called Looploft. I need to make
    my listing pictures prettier and add a bit of sparkle + pizazz to my website.
    who knows, if I win maybe I can put that $$ aside for a trip to Thailand 🙂

    As a broke student (who has less money to my name than one of these classes costs) I would love the opportunity! I’m a blogger and would love to learn some new tips and tricks. And as a photographer I feel that my photoshop skills are limited to the boring technical stuff, and I don’t know how to do any of the fun stuff!

    Gaby Brunell says:

    Blogshop workshops are amazing and I will love to attend one. I can’t wait to spread the blogshop fever into my country, I’m from México and we are crazy about blogging.

    Dani says:

    I would use my new blogshop skills to pump up, revamp, and add some extra personality to my blog! 🙂

    logan says:

    love to take the class for my business, so great!

    Mariel says:

    I admire your work and I love to learn from you! would use this opportunity to make a good advertisement for a small business that will undertake with my dad in Monterrey, Mexico. Is a small gift shop and a coffee shop, it’s called Caleidoscopio.

    Melissa says:

    I would love to learn some new tips and tricks – I love this blog and style of it, so it’d be great to learn a thing or two on how to make something similar! I’m curious about the world of blogging and this might be the push I need to dive in head first! 🙂

    Claire says:

    I’ve always been really interested to learn how to run a blog more efficiently and come up with new ideas to connect with readers. We’ve been working on a blog about food and architecture for almost 4 years now and would love an extra jolt of energy from Blogshop Online to get it into action and connect with lots of people! Thanks DLF!

    Hope says:

    How you’re going to weed through 700+ comments is beyond me, but here it goes! Oh the places I’ll go…on Photoshop. I’m a novice PS user – I can do basic stuff, but get frustrated when I can’t execute what’s in my mind. I use PS occasionally at work – I do digital strategy for a surfing company – and wish I were more proficient so I could do the things I need done without bothering our only graphic designer. I would also use my new skills for personal projects – photo retouching, Christmas cards & Birthday invites – that sort of thing. Thanks for the opportunity!

    CHICKYTHING says:

    I want to use it for my blog and take it to the next level! It’s long overdue, I’ve been blogging since 2007 and it’s still not where I want it to be!

    Vanessa torres says:

    I want to take a blogshop class to learn more about graphic design and to better communicate what I want to say through visuals! I had a mad love for graphic design in middle school, but I don’t have as much time for it now in college, but I still have such great love and respect for all things graphic design and Photoshop <3

    Jan says:

    I’m an event planner based in Asia and have always wanted to start a blog to keep track of all things pretty and memorable, especially pictures taken from travelling, crafty weekends, celebrations and festivals. There are so few cool blogs in my region and I want to be the first to keep one!

    I am planning to move abroad to Paris for a year. Dreamy, I know! I would like to redesign my blog and learn new techniques for my photos before we go. I would like to learn how to make gifs and play around with css. Lucky #714!!

    Kaycie Eddie says:

    I’ve been dying to take your class! I also would love some help learning how to use photoshop. There’s so much to learn 🙂

    Danielle Gindele says:

    what a great opportunity! Coincidentally, my friend and I just started a lifestyle blog together and although my self taught Photoshop skills only go so far, I’ve been wanting to take an online class through Blogshop to help further my skills and learn new techniques!

    Charmaine says:

    I’ve always wanted to start a blog. I house all my photos in a tumblr, but it would be amazing to have the skills to create the blog of my dreams!

    Teisha says:

    We/I would LOVE to win this! As a small business, we really like to be able to do as many things as possible ourselves. One area we could really use some help in is photoshop. Gaining skills in photoshop would open up so many opportunities for marketing, web design & so much more. Plus, we would love to be a part of such a great community 🙂

    Rose says:

    I dream of taking a creative retreat for a couple of days and really sinking my teeth into Blogshop online. I am starting my own freelance makeup artistry business and would love to learn some new skills to help give my website and blog a unique personality and edge. I’d love to bring some of that creative quirkiness that Blogshop inspires to my portfolio and bring some of that WOW factor to help stand out from the crowd.

    My best friend and I are starting a blog and this would be so helpful and such a great way to start out. We both work for a non-profit as full time volunteers who live off the support of families and churches so we can’t really afford a class but it would be so wonderful to win! 🙂

    xo

    I am new to this whole thing blog related!
    I would love to learn the basics and fundaments to running a new and fun blog.
    Blogshop is something i have always wanted to attend but as i live in Australia it is quiet the flight to a class. Online class is absolutely perfect for someone like me wanting to gain and pick both your brains for the in’s and out’s on creating a one of a kind blog.

    I’m a blogger and I would like to improve the appearance of my blog. With our third child on the way, I need to learn ways to make the process more productive and visually engaging with less time.

    Natalie says:

    I’ve just started a blog in the UK and would love to have a bit of help and guidance through your online course, especially working with images which is something I really need help with to make them more personalised and interesting!
    Thanks 🙂

    I’ve been blogging for a couple years, but just purchased a Canon D70 + Photoshop elements. I can do the basics (i.e. pull together a photo collage), but that’s about it. Blogshop would help make my photos pop as well as create more engaging professional content 🙂

    Hi Bri and Angela!
    I would love to go to blogshop online! In my free time I blog and I have fun with it. So, I want to improve my blog, make out it!
    Thank you for this amazing giveaway!

    OMG I’ve always wanted to attend a blogshop. I would make my blog better!

    Courtney Web says:

    I would absolutely use this to better my blog. Having a blog about working on a budget (and living the retail life) doesn’t really allot for a blog shop class. I’d use this class to better my self-taught photoshop skills and kick-ass at future posts for my job and blog.

    Jessica says:

    Hi Angela & Bri!
    I would love a place on your online blogshop! My blog is, among other things, my online portfolio. I need to get to grips with Photoshop and really improve my online presence. My content is so good – I just need my presentation to kick bottom too:)

    Hollie Baker says:

    I am a 5 year graphic and textile artist, but I would love to learn more, more, MORE! I’m at a point where I would like to dive out into freelance and set my own hours, meet new people and dive into an area where more people understand what I love to do! I currently don’t have a blog but have been looking into one, once I finish the redesign on my website and branding. Looking forward to it!

    I’m an 18 year old entrepreneur from New Orleans trying to make a name for myself in the community and the digital world. I can’t afford to take online classes in Adobe Creative Suite, so everything I’ve learned I’ve had to research online. It would be amazing to get a crash-course in graphic design. I have an eye for color and love/think in visuals. This opportunity would be amazing.
    P.S. You should come to New Orleans to teach a shop! We have some fantastic venues and great locals who love to learn. I’d happily volunteer and help with any needs!

    I am a small business owner and mostly self-taught. I’d love to polish my skills.

    Hi!(:
    In my free time I blog and I have fun with it. So, I want to improve my blog, make out it!
    Thank you for this amazing opportunity!

    Alecia says:

    definitely would love this to learn how to do things faster for by blog, but also a business idea I am starting this year! Fingers crossed!

    Bree Moore says:

    I have been a DesignLoveFest blog follower for years! Everything you do is so pretty and girly. I’ve played around with photoshop a lot and am even taking classes, however, those classes aren’t geared toward blogs. I would love to learn about design from one of my inspirations as well as different techniques to showcase my blog on the web. I would get So much out of this class! Fingers crossed!

    stephanie says:

    I would use it to help me in my career as a digital marketer. I work in sports, which is a little different, but this would still be really special. AND it would help me in my new side business of freelancing for clients that need help with social media.

    Melissa K. says:

    My mom is a small business owner and I am in the process of becoming one, as well. I would love the opportunity to take Blogshop so I can help my mom (and myself!) take our websites to the next level! Thank you!

    Jane says:

    I own a boutique coordination company and would love the opportunity to sharpen my blogshop skills to help better my business and brand! I would love to learn to be a Jill of all trades for my one woman company 😉 xoxo

    tara says:

    i recently started a blog as a creative outlet and while my photoshop skills (or rather, lack thereof!) are self-taught, i’m interested in taking this class to learn as much as i possibly can and to make my blog as best as it can be!

    to quote maya angelou “do the best you can until you know better. then, when you know better, do better!”

    Kinga says:

    oooh! i really would love to attend blogshop online.

    i have a jewelry line and i see that the way I represent myself online is cardinal. blogshop would be a great opportunity to learn more of it.

    and i live in europe…so i think the idea of online classes is just mindblowing.

    Meg says:

    After 11 years in Entertainment Marketing, I’ve realized my true passion: Interior Design. This is due in large part to my discovery of Emily Henderson and her absolutely fabulous style. I recently started taking interior design classes at UCLA and even had some opportunities designing for friends. The last design presentation I gave to a friend/potential client was made by putting images over one and other in Power Point. Pretty archaic process…but I think I “faked Photoshop” pretty well. Learning Photoshop and creating a blog will be an important part of this journey. I would be absolutely grateful to win an opportunity to attend the Online Blogshop 🙂
    Best,
    Meg

    Nic says:

    I would LOVE to take the class! It’s been such a dream to start a blog, but I have no idea where to begin!

    megan says:

    i’ve been keeping a blog for the past few months, but feel too nervous to tell anyone about it. blogshop would definitely help me to be confident enough to share it with others!

    Anonymous says:

    I would so LOVE to be able to participate in Blogshop!!! I have been wanting to pull the trigger and start a blog for the last year but my ineptitude with photoshop has been one of my stalling points. I am also in the throws of starting my own consulting business, unrelated to the blog, and can really see the value in being able to edit my own photographs. Needless to say, my fingers and toes are crossed!

    hanalei says:

    DUH use it to snazz up my blog & small business! These classes are so pretty in the pictures you share, I’m dying to see what the online set-up would be like. Pick me! ha.

    Channing says:

    Shoooot….taking the online blogshop class is exactly what my little heart desires. My photoshop skills are super rusty and I told myself that 2014 is my year to finally join the magical blog world so ‘blogshop class’ lets work together to make this happen!

    I am starting a new blog and blogshop would be perfect for this!

    Alice Barton says:

    I’m a little blogger with really big dreams!
    I’m sick of my 9-5 job and I’m trying to build a dream. Not sure what it is yet, but it involves photography, hand made clothes and not having a horrible boss! I’d love to have the opportunity to learn all about photoshop (but what’s REALLY useful, not all the boring useless stuff, no time for that!!) and be able to believe I could someday start a little online business and work from home and basically live a happy life. Thanks for creating this SUPER unique course! 🙂 Alice. xx

    Cristina says:

    This would be such a treat to win.I’ve been reading your blog since the beginning and dream of taking the Blogshop class whenever I see the class posts with all the students and all the fun photobooth pictures and colorful decorations. I’ve been wanting to learn graphic design skills for a few years to help me transition to a more creative field but my budget doesn’t permit me to take that leap yet and this would be an amazing first step towards that.

    I would love to learn more PS magic to up my blogging game as well as future branding options for my still-in-my-head business prospect. 🙂

    Julia says:

    I would love to attend Blogshop online! I want to use a more creative approach for our internal communications. We have great content but I’m lacking some tools and inspiration for „wrapping it“. Blogshop would be a great chance to dive into that. Fingers crossed!

    Barbara says:

    What a great opportunity!!! I would just love to get a real handle on PS – for personal use, my blog I’m just working to launch soon, and my day job! So far, I was always hesitant to really dive in, but I think taking a class like yours could be a perfect way to get a kickstart on this long overdue project…

    caroline w. says:

    i’ve been wanting to start an urban design blog (with my own content! not just reblogs!) but i don’t have the skills to make it look as dope as i’d like it. i’d love taking a blogshop class to learn all the tricks! also i live in london so i think it’s probably a long shot that you’ll be doing an in person class here soon.

    Daria says:

    I am a blogger and a teacher of interior design and I would like to learn new photoshop skills first of all to make my blog more visually attractive and of course to make my lectures more vivid and understandable for students with the help of beautifully made slides. Will be extremelly happy to win!

    Lindsay D says:

    I am a life long lover .
    A interior design graduate, I recently closed the doors to my little urban general store. It was a mash up of hand picked local gems, a small take out counter for in-house meals and sweets and little sun splashed terrace in the back for long afternoons/evenings of conversation over pretty cocktails. It was called FAIT ICI – which means made here. The area where it was located started loosing all the independent boutiques when the big players (Starbucks, American Apparel ect) moved in and rent doubled. I had no choice but to pack it in & head on. I am now getting ready to dive into my next chapter and though I don’t have an exact picture of what it looks like my plan is to start a blog full of everything that inspires me to produce. With SO many things that interest and excite me I thought the best approach would be to break it down broadly into my favourite passions and pursuit, RUN WITH IT & document EVERYTHING (since I kinda do that anyway). I would love the opportunity to create, collect, curate & connect.

    I absolutely adore your sense of style and would love to learn some photoshop skills to put my best front forward.

    Martha B says:

    I would use the class to help the company I work for build a better online presence. Also, I would like to start my own blog and this would help me get started!

    Molly Dodd says:

    I would love the opportunity to learn more about how to maximize my influence and skills as a blogger. Anyone can post online, but I want my posts to matter in a bigger way.

    i definitely want to streamline my blogging with some new tricks and tips and come up with a uniform, unique aesthetic. i’ll be starting some new workshops for a business and would like to use these skills to get that going!

    Paige says:

    I am a freelance photo stylist and am adding an online shop to my website. I travel to Mexico and purchase textiles and clothing made by the local women and artisans. I would really love to improve my photography and photoshop skills to show how beautiful and exquisitely made all of their pieces are. I would also love to add a travel blog to my site to show how the textiles are created. Some of the women carry looms attached to their backs! And they were the most beautiful traditional clothing. All of my photoshop skills have been self-taught, I would really like to step up my game so I can share these beautiful products and the women who make them with everyone. Thanks for considering me!

    Zoe Ganch says:

    As a design student, I have dabbled in graphic design and product design. I currently co-own a laser cut jewelry business, and a design blog would be a wonderful next step! I would love to win blog shop to prepare us for our blogging venture! 🙂

    Debora says:

    I’d love to follow a blogshop! I’d use my new skills to give my final thesis (of my bachelor in Communications), which is on bloggers and other social influencers, the beautiful layout design it deserves!

    katrina b says:

    I would like to learn some new skills in order to start a blog of my own! I love reading others blog and its about time i start one of my own 🙂

    Stacey says:

    I’ve been following designlovefest for years now and would really like to learn some new skills for my personal blog by the one and only blogger Bri Emery. I’ve been trying to get my blog rolling but have a tough time keeping up with it. I truly believe that blogshop will motivate me to be creative and try different things. Usually everything I try to do on photoshop takes forever but if I were to learn some shortcuts and tricks I think I’ll be able to focus more time on the creative content than the execution 🙂

    Pomai Weall says:

    I find daily inspiration and motivation from Blogshop. A workshop to teach, challenge, and support in a creative environment?! Sounds like heaven to me! Immediately, I’d apply the skills I’d gain from Blogshop at work. I’m lucky enough to work in a creative space, however I lack the technical skills to implement my ideas. Personally, I have been wanting to start a blog! And the lessons from Blogshop are taught over different mediums. Which for me, is crucial! I’m definitely a visual learner, so having that variety would make a world of a difference in my learning!
